Why study Computer Science at BenU?

You can develop a strong foundation in computer science coupled with an understanding of its application to mathematics, science or business through a core of required courses. You will also choose electives that allow you to concentrate on the theory and applications of computers, scientific and technical applications. A team-oriented, software engineering project caps off your program.

You will build a solid foundation in problem-solving, algorithm development, data structures, programming and computer organization, as well as strong oral and written communication skills vital to your career.
