CHED ACCREDITATION: G.R. 052, Series of 2015
PROGRAM HEAD: Reuben Ravago
The Computer Science (CS) program is geared towards educating a capable and well-founded software developer with a technology stack that will allow one to be competitive in the growing market of IT practitioners. This course will adapt the latest methodologies in app development in the digital space. Through a select combination of programming languages, protocols, and tools the students will be developing cross-platform apps and services that will be deployed on desktop and mobile devices.
CS Students will be given actual experiences in developing and launching apps into both the Apple AppStore and Google Play. For CS Students, this serves as a starting point. The direction eventually leads to server side development for deeper computing challenges such as data management, data analysis, machine learning, and even hardware programming. They are a back-end complement to the IT student.
The course will immerse the CS student in the principles of community and collaboration. Community will be the group of computer science practitioners working together and sharing their skills to solve programming problems. This is reflective of product teams that build the latest software today and also of the various social networks of computer science practitioners that are ready to answer technical questions and share their experiences. Collaboration will be the expanded interaction that CS students will have with the students from the Arts and Business tracks of MINT college. This is meant to expand their aptitude in working with professionals with complementary skills. Embracing these two principles will give CS students an edge in the workplace as well as in tech entrepreneurship.
