Connected Degree

Computing and Information Science

to B.S. Computer Science

An opportunity to gain an associate degree from Delaware Tech and a bachelor's degree from Delaware State University.

YOUR PATH TO A BACHELOR'S DEGREE

Delaware Tech has established agreements with four-year colleges and universities that connect Delaware Tech associate degree programs with bachelor's degree programs to create smooth transfer opportunities for you. These Connected Degree programs enable you to complete your associate degree and then transfer to a four-year degree program as a junior.

THE CONNECTED DEGREE 2 + 2 CURRICULUM

Delaware Tech's Computing and Information Science program focuses on identifying, understanding, and resolving problems through established and developing technologies. Graduates will gain knowledge about the hierarchy of levels in computers, CPU structure, control unit operations, parallel organization, and Reduced Instruction Set Computers (RISC). Additional classes in higher mathematics, economics and business will round out the student's understanding of CIS applications in preparation for a career in this growing industry. Graduates will have the fundamental skills necessary to design computing and information technology solutions so that they are prepared to be successful upon transfer to a bachelor?s degree program. Delaware State University's Computer Science (CS) program provides students with the opportunity to learn more than how to write computer programs. Graduates also develop career-advancing skills such as communication, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving. Students are encouraged to explore new ideas and technologies, as well as to find new uses for existing computer science technologies. The senior capstone project enables computer science majors to broaden their horizons and apply their expertise in fields such as business, science, education, social services or entertainment. Nearly every industry relies on computers so graduates from this major enjoy a wide range of job opportunities.

VALUE FOR YOU

By completing your associate degree at Delaware Tech, you'll receive excellent instruction in small classes at a campus close to home. Delaware Tech's affordable tuition can reduce the overall cost of your college education, making the completion of your bachelor's degree more manageable.
