This program is an overview of computer programming.
Students who earn this certificate will likely be:
1) transferring as a Computer Science or Computer Engineering major to a California university campus without earning the Computer Science A.S. degree
2) learning to be a programmer to enhance their career
Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:
To take the first course in the certificate sequence, CISP 300, a student must pass Math 120 with a C or better.
The program goal is Career Technical Education.
A three year trend analysis of other awards in this TOP Code show an annual average of about 34 students per year. For this program alone, there would likely be about 10 per year.
The goal of this program is occupational for students interested in becoming computer programmers.
Students must complete the 6 required courses (with a passing grade) for a total of 22 units to earn this certificate of achievement. Courses must be taken in sequence as each subsequent course requires the previous course(s) as a prerequisite(s)
