Our world has become increasingly dependent on computers. As a result, skilled developers of software, web platforms, apps and databases continue to be in high demand. If that digital world inspires you, computer science may be a good department for you.
AACC computer science graduates are competent in their discipline, particularly in the areas of problem solving, technical competency and software development. Our dedicated and enthusiastic instructors work with small classes in a laboratory setting. Students receive individual attention and participate in hands-on learning.
Our department offers three degrees with several specialization options, as well as several certificates. Learn more about our areas of study:

Assistance is available for current technology students in the Open Lab located in CALT 204. Please review the schedule posted in the doorway to see the current hours of operation.
In this club students have an opportunity to enhance their computer science knowledge and skills, while having fun and experimenting with current and emerging technologies. Technical demonstrations, hands-on experiences and guest speaker events are a few of the activities that this club will offer. Raspberry Pi and Arduino units are just a couple of examples of the technology that our club is currently exploring. This club is supported by the Computer Science department faculty.
This club meets to discuss topics in cybersecurity and practice their skills. All students are welcome! Club members also compete in regional and national cyber challenges. This club is supported by Cybersecurity, Networking, and Digital Forensics department faculty.
Consider expanding your learning beyond the classroom by becoming an intern. Whether you are looking to apply learning to a career or transfer to a four-year program, internships provide valuable experience and industry contacts. For more information about internships, contact Angelo Thalassinidis, Ph.D, assistant dean at firstname.lastname@example.org.
