Computer Science Department
In today's world, nearly everyone either uses or depends on computers — and the people they depend on to make those computers useful are computer science majors. Briar Cliff's computer science program gives students a thorough understanding of how computers work and provides students with the opportunity to develop the computer programming and problem solving skills that are in demand in today's business world.
Briar Cliff Computer Science graduates are well-prepared to enter careers in computer programming and systems analysis. Briar Cliff graduates are currently employed at such places as Microsoft, Mid-American Energy, Mutual of Omaha, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, The Principal, American Identity, and other businesses.
What does it take to become a computer science major?
A computer science major must have the ability to think logically (if you're good in math, you'll probably be good in computer science, too) and the ability to see a problem solution through to the end (most programming projects take a considerable amount of time). If you're good at both, computer science might be for you!
