It is the objective of the Computer Science program to prepare students with skills consistent with today’s demand for graduates with hardware and software expertise in areas such as computer graphics, distributed information system, or internet engineering.
Entering students should be prepared to begin calculus and have a working knowledge of computer programming. Transfer students from recognized community colleges, technical institutes, or undergraduate colleges will receive the maximum allowable transferrable credit toward programs at NYIT. All students have access to sophisticated computer equipment and up-to-date laboratory facilities.
By the end of the second term, each computer major must select, in consultation with an advisor, an area of computer application in which to specialize. A minimum of 12 elective credits, approved by the department, must be selected in this area. Courses are designed to produce a versatile individual capable of graduate study or employment in expanding computer-based industries.
