Always interested in the latest technology? A degree in Computer Science from Heritage will prepare you for a promising future in an emerging, exciting field. You’ll find that numerous industries are in need of your expertise, from the health care industry to major global organizations.

About Our Program

Our Computer Science program is based in engineering and mathematics but draws upon concepts from a wide variety of other disciplines such as linguistics, psychology, biology, philosophy, economics and business. With our series of advanced-topic courses, you’ll gain the valuable knowledge and skills needed for rewarding internship placements. These internships offer a chance to apply what you’ve learned in class, explore new interests, refine your career goals and develop new strengths and understanding of real-world environments.

The Computer Science program at Heritage focuses on the theory and techniques by which information is encoded, stored, communicated, transformed and analyzed. The program concentrates on the theory of algorithms (effective procedures), the structure of languages for expression of algorithms and the design of efficient algorithms for the solution of practical problems. Extra emphasis is placed on the study of everyday computer systems (hardware and programs) for the automatic execution of these algorithms.
