Computer Science

EMU’s computer science program seeks to produce skilled computing professionals with a respect for the cultural and social impact of computing technologies in our modern global community.

The entire curriculum is designed to meet the ACM 2013 Curriculum guidelines. The department is working with the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals to offer one of two possible certifications upon completion of either degree and successful completion of the CS2013 exam. Students who score 50% or higher on both parts of the exam qualify for the ICCP Certified Computer Science Associate credential. Students who score 70% or higher qualify for the ICCP Certified Computer Scientist – mastery level.

Based on Spring 2015 Beta test results, most students who finish the BACS program will be capable of qualifying for the Certified Computer Science Associate credential and those who finish the BSCS program will be capable of qualifying for the Certified Computer Scientist – mastery level.
