Computer Science (Transfer)
Computers are an integral part of most human activities and professions. Therefore, a wide variety of career opportunities are available to the computer science professionals who are commonly referred to as computer scientists.

Computer scientists are responsible for analyzing requirements, planning, developing high-level design, writing, and testing the program that delivers the expected results. Computer scientists may be involved with support and maintenance of the solutions.

Computer scientists are employed in all industries such as manufacturing, finance, service, retail, gaming, and others. Typically, computer scientists work with other professionals in order to develop solutions that meet business and customer requirements.

Computer science specialties include:


  • Artificial intelligence

  • Computer vision

  • Database

  • Graphics and animation

  • Embedded systems

  • Networking

  • Operating Systems

  • Program languages and compilers

  • Robotics
Computer Science (AST2)
This is a suggested program for the first two years of a four-year Computer Science program. These lower-division course requirements will vary depending on the math and English placement at Clark College, and on the requirements of the four-year institution to which you transfer. It is critical that you work with a Computer Science and Engineering faculty advisor to ensure your program will give you the maximum benefit when you transfer. Additional courses are needed to satisfy graduation requirements for the Associate in Science degree.
