Applied Computer Science students learn how to work with data structures, algorithmic design, information security, and software engineering. Majors take courses in discrete math and survey of calculus. The Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Computer Science has three options: traditional Applied Computer Science, Game and Simulation, and Cybersecurity.
Game and Simulation
Students pursuing the game and simulation degree learn how to design virtual and augmented reality learning environments using programming (python, object-oriented), graphics, computer organization, physics engines, haptics, 3D and animation, educational design (development, evaluation), physics, and psychology (sensation, perception).
