The field of Computer Science is predicated around the design of computer programs (software) and computer hardware.  We now live in an era where computers are used in virtually every area of business, entertainment, consumer products, and academia.  The Computer Science Program at St. Philip's College is centered on understanding a problem, designing a solution, and then applying that  solution within a high-level programming language.  A student may choose between the Associate of Science Degree, Advising Guide, or the Field of Study.

Students will have the opportunity to obtain an education and skills in the field of Computer Science via the latest technology (software/hardware) and have their courses transfer to a four-year academic institution, thus enabling them the ability to acquire their bachelor's degree.
