AS Degree – Code #0532
The computer science program at Alfred State was one of the originally established programs in the SUNY (State University of New York) system. It is a comprehensive program, which includes both the study of the underlying theories of computing as well as the specific applications of information manipulation and problem solving.
Most students who enroll in computer science do so with the intent of continuing their education after graduating from Alfred State. The degree granted is an Associate in Science (AS), and supports exceptionally well the needs of the transfer student. Though primarily a “transfer” program, many students do, however, elect to enter the job market upon graduation or continue at Alfred State pursuing a bachelor degree.
A laptop computer is required for students entering the computer science program. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops.
PROGRAM STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES
DIRECT ENTRY INTO BACCALAUREATE DEGREE PROGRAM
Alfred State computer science graduates may enter directly into the technology management BBA degree program.
The primary focus of the computer science program is transfer. The AS degree granted is specifically designed to maximize transfer credit to four-year programs. Transfer into the information technology programs: network administration, Web development, and applications software development is possible with junior status with careful selection of courses for electives.
Employment and transfer rate: 100 percent. 50 percent employed; 50% transferred to continue their education.
