What Can You Do With a Computer Science AS-T Degree?

This degree is designed to transfer to a CSU, where you can complete your bachelor’s degree in computer science or a related field. That bachelor’s degree becomes a foundation for a career as a:

  • Information scientist
  • Computer and information systems manager
  • Computer hardware engineer
  • Computer network architect
  • Computer programmer
  • Database administrator
  • Information security analyst
  • Software developer
  • Tech executive

Become an Information Scientist

From social media to Googling obscure information, computer science has worked its way into your modern life. It’s an ever-evolving part of the world and understanding how it all works is crucial to many jobs. With a computer science degree, you become a scientist of information and computers by extension. You can work in IT security or develop new hardware and software, helping to shape the future. All you need to do is get started today.

Discover the Next Big Thing

Computer science studies computation, automation, and information. You deal with computers, computer systems, and the theory, design, development, and application of software systems. With the invention of new computer systems and software, the field will keep growing. More discoveries are made every day, meaning more problems to fix and solutions to improve. As a scientist, your curiosity drives your next question. At CMC, our instructors build on that curiosity, giving you the fundamentals so you can help discover the next big thing.
