Computer Coding-AAS

The Associate of Applied Science in Computer Coding will focus on the scripting and coding skills employers are demanding. A strong emphasis will be placed on hands-on labs and exercises that will reinforce the lectures. Students will have ample time to be creative in their programs, and the degree will be administered in such a way to make the learning/exercises useful beyond academics. What sets this degree apart from similar degrees is the ability of graduates to get much more scripting and coding experience while meeting the requirements of the A.A.S. degree.

Graduates can work in multiple settings including:

  • Database Operator
  • Software Debugger
  • Help Desk
  • Software Administrator
  • Computer Coding
  • Mobile App Designer
