1 ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE COMPUTER SCIENCE Norwalk Community College

2 Computer Science Program Objectives  Consolidate Existing, Rigid Programs  Determine and Provide Basic CS Skills  Serve target populations  Transfer Student  Career Student  Part Time Student

3 Computer Science Existing Programs  Always a good idea at the time!  Technology changes too rapidly  Classes become obsolete  Skills aren’t marketable  Classes don’t transfer  Population dwindles, classes don’t run  Course Substitutions

4 Computer Science Basic Computer Science Skills  We believe every CS student should:  Know a programming language  Be able to access and manipulate data stored in a relational database  Know XML  Student-driven curriculum

5 Computer Science Target Populations  Transfer Student  Seeking a Bachelor’s degree  Articulation agreements  Deferring classes  Career Student  Seeking employment  Cooperative Education  Part Time Student  Class availability

6 Computer Science Transfer Students  Classes determined by receiving institution  Articulation Agreements  UConn  Fairfield University  Sacred Heart University  Western Connecticut State University  Flexibility required to meet multiple needs

7 Computer Science Career Students  Employable skills  Desired skills  NCC Services  Cooperative Education  Career Center

8 Computer Science Part Time Students  Sequencing  Distance learning

9 Computer Science One Degree – All Students  Liberal Arts Core  Basic CS Skills  Flexible Design  Student-centered  Allows for new technology  Sequencing marginalized
