Computing and Information Science

to 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 provides students with the foundational computing, analytical, communication, collaborative, and mathematics skills at the associate degree level for transfer to a bachelor's degree institution to earn a degree in preparation for a career in computer-related fields. 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.

Computer Science (CS) majors at Delaware State University learn more than how to write computer programs. They also develop career-advancing skills such as communication, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving. Computer science plays a critical role in the advancement of many other sciences where an ever-growing number of experiments and data analyses depend on utilization of efficient computational algorithms. Due to our close collaborations with other departments in the sciences, CS majors have the opportunity to get involved in cutting-edge interdisciplinary research at the intersection of various fields. Small class sizes ensure that students work closely with faculty and tailor their education to their own interests.

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.
