The Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer degree will prepare students
for upper division coursework in the study of information systems, their representation,
architecture, and implementation. Computer Science is the study of the methods by
which data is accessed, stored, and retrieved, which include areas such as representational
computation, programming languages, algorithmic modeling, and software design, testing
and development. Students in the Computer Science program will study and apply their
knowledge of mathematics, physics, and logic to solve a variety of problems using
current technology. Courses include programming languages and concepts, Systems Analysis,
Mathematics, Physics, Computer Hardware, and Data Structures. The Associate in Science
in Computer Science for Transfer degree is suited to the needs of students who will
complete their education at Chaffey College with an A.S. degree, as well as those
students who will complete their Chaffey A.S. degree and transfer to a CSU to complete
their bachelor's degree.
Successful completion of the transfer degree in Computer Science guarantees the student acceptance to a California State University (but does not guarantee acceptance to a particular campus or major) to pursue a baccalaureate degree, in preparation to pursue a career in the field of computer science. Students are advised to consult with a counselor for more information on degree requirements, or university admission and transfer requirements.
