Computer Science Overview

There is strong demand for Computer Science majors in the work force. It is estimated that there will be 20 openings for every Computer Science graduate in the US next year. The main reason for the rapid growth is a large increase in the demand for computer software. These entry level job opportunities have excellent salary and benefits with no job experience required. CMC offers up-to-date training with transfer degrees and certificates that will prepare you for a four-year school or the job market.

Students must complete the required courses for their major. General education units, transferable electives, and total degree units will vary for each student.  Some considerations include the courses (and their respective units) chosen to complete a general education area or transferable elective, and if required courses  for your major also count toward a general education area. Please see your academic counselor to help you reach your educational goals.
