Computer Science

This program offers transferable courses in computer science for students who wish to obtain a bachelor's degree in computer science, mathematics, engineering or a related field. Students may take courses at Brookhaven College that can be used toward a bachelor's degree at a four-year college or university.

About Our Program

Our experienced faculty and staff members are here to help you be successful. We offer an Associate of Science degree with a field of study in computer science. The coursework for the field of study can be easily applied to our Associate of Applied Science software/programmer degree should you choose to pursue it at a later time.

What Will You Learn?

At Brookhaven, we are constantly updating the courses to keep up with the rapidly-evolving field of computer science programming. This ensures our students have the skills most in demand:

  • Fundamentals of structured and object-oriented programming in C++, C#, Java and/or assembly languages
  • Objective-C language for mobile devices including smartphones and tablets

Students begin by learning basic computer programming: writing, executing, testing and debugging a computer language then progressing to more advanced skills. Along the way, students will develop skills for problem-solving and analysis.
