Welcome to the Department of Computer Science at Alabama A&M University.
The first of its kind in the state of Alabama, the computer science program at AAMU aims to prepare and shape today's leaders for positions of influence in the areas of computer technology and innovation. Toward this end, a broad and well-balanced curriculum extends the frontiers of computer science. As society continues to advance and explore the vast resources at its disposal via space and other developments, the program keeps pace with these transitions and constantly works to make the necessary adjustments to ensure students are prepared to meet the volatile demands of society. It is this program's goal to provide the very best education in the area of computer science and to afford students with the scholarship and professionalism to impact on the evolutions of today's global society.
The program area of Computer Science offers a course of study designed to give students a thorough grounding in both theoretical and practical areas of computer science. In that computer science continues to be a rapidly growing and changing field with a wide variety of occupational opportunities, the curriculum provides students an in-depth background in both the hardware and software aspects of Computer Science. Virtually every Computer Science course requires some practice in programming skills, so that students will, upon graduation, be prepared for either graduate school or entry into the computer applications job market. The program area of Computer Science also offers individual courses and minors to students in other disciplines.
