Computer Science, B.A.

School of Computer Sciences

For students interested in computer science, Indiana Tech offers two options: a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of science. Both programs provide a broad background in the field of computer science, with extensive work in program development, data structures and algorithms, operating systems, computer system architecture, network architecture, theory of computation, software engineering and programming language design.

The bachelor of arts option will require you to take fewer junior- and senior-level mathematics courses, which will give you a pathway to adding a minor to the computer science degree. The degree will prepare you to enter the software development field at the programmer level or work in various technology support roles that require a high level of technical competency.

Why choose Indiana Tech?

  • You will take on software design and analysis projects of increasing sophistication as you progress through your coursework.
  • You will gain a broad background in computer science while filling out your education in other fields such as information systems, humanities, social sciences or business.
  • Indiana Tech fosters an active learning environment, enriched by instructors who possess years of experience in their respective field
