Computer Science

The Computer Science Department prepares students for fulfilling careers in the computing sciences by providing an excellent hands-on educational experience within an engaging and friendly learning community. Many of our courses are project-based providing students with real-world problem solving and programming experience. Our graduates excel in internships and post-graduate jobs because they already know how to solve problems and create software, "They hit the ground running."

The department's approaches of learn-by-doing and hands-on instruction provide graduates with the skills necessary to immediately start contributing to an industrial setting. Managers that hire our graduates often report that Chico graduates are initially more productive than other new employees.
