NOTE: CS 3424 requires MATH 2345 Discrete Math as a pre-requisite.

Minor in CS Program Objectives

  •  Provide students with computing knowledge that can be applied in their major area of study.
  •  To provide students with fundamental programming skills.

Minor in CS Learning Outcomes

  •  Demonstrate programming skills in 2 different programming languages.
  •  Demonstrate knowledge of at least one additional area of computing.

Minor Courses for Computer Science

  • CSE 1301 Programming & Problem Solving I (4 credits)
  • CSE 1302 Programming & Problem Solving II (4 credits)
  • CS 3424 Data Structures (4 credits)

Software Engineering Minor

To be eligible for a minor in Software Engineering, the student must complete the following courses with a grade of "C" or better. Students must have at least 9 upper level SWE hours.

Minor in SWE Program Objectives

Students earning a minor in Software Engineering will:

  •  Possess broad foundations in software engineering concepts and methodologies so they may contribute to the effective design and implementation of large scale software

Minor in SWE Learning Outcomes

Students earning a Software Engineering minor will have demonstrated the ability to:

  •  Apply SWE practices and process to software design and development.
  •  Demonstrate the ability to gather, analyze, develop, verify and/or validate artifacts of software engineering systems.
  •  Use software tools effectively in some phases of software development.

 

Minor Courses in Software Engineering

  • CSE 1302 Programming & Problem Solving II   (4 credits)
