Why choose Computer Science at PPCC?

As the world becomes technologically complex, it is easy to overlook the building blocks of our digital society - computer code. Computer programmers and scientists are in demand and can have well-paying, secure careers in a field that is continuously growing and evolving.

What will I study?

Our program allows you to learn the foundations of programming as you move toward establishing your career. Students will gain knowledge in:

  • Application Development
  • Systems Programming
  • Application Programming for Mobile Devices
  • Database Programming
  • Computer Architecture and Programming


Example Classes I Might Take

Introduces programming and applications development for computer science.
Introduces students to the discipline of computer science and programming. Algorithm development, data representation, logical expressions, sub-programs and input/output operations using a high-level programming language are covered. Intensive lab work outside of class time is required.
Continues algorithm development and problem solving techniques not covered in Computer Science I using a high-level programming language. Students are able to gain experience in the use of data structures and the design and implementation of larger software projects. Intensive computer laboratory experience is required for this course.

You Should Consider CS if you:

  • Take interest in working in one of the most innovative fields in today's society
  • Want to study and work in one of the most critical fields of our time
  • Like the idea that in Colorado, 5 of the Top 10 occupations are in computer-related fields.
  • Recognize Computer Science permeates all aspects of society (Social Networking, Medical Systems, Transportation, Entertainment, Commerce, etc.)

Program Learning Outcomes

Program Learning Outcomes (PLO) are competencies with which students will be proficient at the completion of an academic program. Program Learning Outcomes link with course learning outcomes and competencies.
