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, Applied Gaming, and Cybersecurity.

Applied Gaming

Students pursuing the applied gaming 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).
