The Computer Science program at the Hood College is ideal for individuals who want to acquire or update their skills in cutting-edge computer science technologies – and tackle the challenges inherent in capturing, storing, sharing, transferring and analyzing data.


Program Overview

Instruction from experts

Faculty members are specialists in robotics, website design, software engineering, digital electronics, scientific visualization and more. They bring their expertise into the classroom, sharing in-depth knowledge and practical experience in a contemporary context. Advanced Computer Science courses in emerging areas — such as artificial intelligence, parallel computing and data mining — build on mastery gained in algorithm analysis, operating systems, computer architecture and other core requirements.


Thanks to small classes and readily available faculty, students can count on personal attention and advice when selecting the courses and specialty track that best suits their career goals. The elective sequence may include a thesis, fieldwork or software engineering project. With careful selection of electives, students can concurrently complete or make significant progress toward the Certificate in Cybersecurity. Evening classes accommodate daytime work schedules.
