Undergraduate Computer Science Minors

Undergraduate Computer Science Minors

The Minor in Artificial Intelligence is designed for non-Computer Science majors to have significant exposure in fundamentals of computer science and the modern technical area of artificial intelligence, which can provide valuable knowledge and skill in the development of students' majors and for the job market.

Designed to introduce students to the collection, informatics analysis and interpretation of data derived from genomic and biological macromolecular investigations, the Minor in Bioinformatics and Genomics provides students with a foundation of understanding and the computing skill necessary to communicate in the increasingly data-centric life sciences. In addition to gaining first-hand experience with current technologies for high-throughput data generation, students will receive training in up-to-date methods for data handling and interpretation while developing an understanding of critical issues in bioinformatics research design, statistical data analysis, and the application of genomics domain knowledge.

The Minor in Data Science is designed for non-Computer Science majors to have significant exposure in fundamentals of computer science and the modern technical area of data science, which can provide valuable knowledge and skill in the development of students' majors and for the job market.

This program is designed to provide students with the Information Technology knowledge necessary for today's information-based society.  Students not only gain hands-on knowledge of how to use the Internet to develop effective and easy-to-use applications but also understand critical issues in designing information systems such as requirements development, integration, security and privacy, legal and policy considerations, and project management.

The Minor in Software Systems is designed for non-Computer Science majors to have significant exposure in fundamentals of computer science and the classical technical area of software systems, which can provide valuable knowledge and skill in the development of students' majors and for the job market.
