Stimulate the senses. Engage the mind. When you study Computation Arts, you become a digital artist, using algorithms and computational theory to create interactive multimedia that breaks new audio-visual ground.
The Computer Applications option gives students the flexibility to combine a traditional computer science degree with a non-traditional field. Our state-of-the-art labs for 3D graphics, high-performance computing and artificial intelligence will give you experience with the equipment you’ll use in the field. Through labs, lectures and projects, you’ll also:
Investigate programming paradigms as they relate to digital art and design
Learn the techniques and conceptual strategies central to 3D digital production
Use computer systems to process, synthesize, and manipulate digitized representations of sound
Program options & degree requirements
A Bachelor of Computer Science degree takes a minimum of three or four years (90 – 120 credits) of full-time study, depending on your academic background.
The core provides a basic and broad study of theory, mathematical basics, programming methodology, computer architecture, data structures, operating systems, and software engineering.
The Computer Applications option (90 credit program) gives the full flexibility for students to combine a solid grounding of hardware and software with another field of study outside the Gina Cody School of Engineering and Computer Science. Students are free to declare a Major or Minor in another discipline or to take a minimum of 24 credits in another field of study.
