Welcome to the Computer Science Department

A degree in Computer Science is one of the top 3 majors that will land you a well-paying job right out of school (Forbes 2012).

At San Juan College, we offer an Associates of Science (AS) degree in Computer Science that will prepare you for transfer to a four-year computer science program. Our program includes problem analysis, design, and testing, and applied instruction in scientific and applications programming languages. You'll receive in-depth training in problem solving through computer science, programming, mathematics, and science course work. Our goal is to equip you with the theoretical knowledge base and practical computing skills required to successfully achieve your Bachelor's degree from a 4-year institution.
