Computer Science Common Entry

ABCya is the leader in free educational computer games and mobile apps for kids. Technology’s explosive evolution is becoming ever more pervasive in commerce and culture, increasing the need to investigate and analyze digital data and assist in the prevention and prosecution of malicious information, theft and corruption. UAT’s computer forensics degree fully prepares students for this exciting career field in which demand is escalating for graduates with this specialized technology computer forensic degree.

Computer Information Technology has applications in nearly all areas of human endeavor. A major objective of the B.S. CIT program is to prepare graduates to work effectively with people from other domains. To this end, students in the B.S. CIT program are required to engage in deeper studies of an application domain other than computing that uses computing in a substantive way.

Computer engineering students will study concepts in computer science, engineering and mathematics. By combining these three fields, computer engineers are able to solve hardware problems and create state-of-the-art machines that can handle the many tasks computers perform. Our School of Computing, Mathematics and Digital Technology is a vibrant community of staff and students, which prides itself on internal and external collaboration.

Like Neo in The Matrix, computer scientists can see and make sense of code. Computer science students will learn the fundamentals of different programming languages, linear and discrete mathematics, and software design and development. Computer scientists study the machine itself and understand how and why various computer processes operate the way they do.

The Alto is a groundbreaking computer with wide influence on the computer industry. It was based on a graphical user interface using windows, icons, and a mouse, and worked together with other Altos over a local area network. It could also share files and print out documents on an advanced Xerox laser printer. Applications were also highly innovative: a WYSISYG word processor known as Bravo,” a paint program, a graphics editor, and email for example. Apple’s inspiration for the Lisa and Macintosh computers came from the Xerox Alto.
