About the Computer Science Program
The Heritage Computer Science program is based in engineering and mathematics. It draws upon concepts from a wide variety of other disciplines such as linguistics, psychology, biology, philosophy, economics, and business. The program also includes a series of advanced-topic courses to provide students with the valuable knowledge and skills needed for rewarding internship placements. These internships give students a chance to apply what they have learned in class, explore new interests, refine career goals, and develop new strengths and understanding of real IT work environments.
The Computer Science program at Heritage focuses on the theory and techniques by which information is encoded, stored, communicated, transformed, and analyzed. The program concentrates on the theory of algorithms (effective procedures), the structure of languages for expression of algorithms, and the design of efficient algorithms for the solution of practical problems. Extra emphasis is placed on the study of everyday computer systems (hardware and programs) for the automatic execution of these algorithms.
