About The Department
The department has created a cutting-edge first-year computer science sequence using Python and Java. You can read about these courses by clicking on the CS courses link on the left. They are CS 402, 404, and 406.
The second course, 404, is an early-objects introduction to Java. Students who take this course learn how to write a simple, robust, event-driven application. A third trimester, 406, introduces object-oriented data structures and more than completes the requirements of the AP Computer Science Syllabus.
For second-year students, we offer a year-long Data Structures course. In this course, students also get to learn about threading, sockets, and they learn to develop substantial Java applications. This year, we are implementing a new course, CS 408, which studies the layers of abstraction in modern computers, from the logic gate to the modern compiler.
During the 2006-07 academic year, we launched a new engineering program, and Paul Menchini come here to build it. Since then, Paul has become the chief system and database programmer for NCSSM, and is the creator of our new Student Information System based on FOCUS.
In the intervening years, we hired John Kirk and Ershela Sims. Their expertise has enabled us to create a new suite of offerings in Engineering, at both introductory and advanced levels. You can learn more about these courses by clicking on the FAQ Page menu on the left.
