Computer Science (CS)

Major Requirements

Avila Computer Science majors will participate in a learning experience designed to give students maximum choices as they plan for a successful future in their chosen career.

Opportunities include:

  • Academic coursework emphasizing concepts and skills.
  • Practical, real-life experience similar to experiences in the workplace.
  • After graduating with this major, students should be successful in a variety of information technology and computer-related jobs and could continue on to graduate studies to earn masters and doctorate degrees.

Advanced Computer Science


Technology Requirement

Computer competency will be demonstrated by successful completion of CS 210 


Computer Science majors will be expected to meet the following program outcomes.

Outcome 1.

The student will acquire appropriate foundational programming skills (CS 120 , CS 160 , CS 165 , CS 166 , CS 222 ).

Outcome 2.

The student will design and implement advanced computer programs to solve problems (CS 222 , CS 245 , CS 313 , CS 314 , CS 499 ).

Outcome 3.

The student will read and communicate computer ideas orally and in writing (CS 210 CS 346 , CS 499 ).

Outcome 4.

The student will write papers requiring research into the computer discipline (CS 346 , CS 499 ).

Outcome 5.

The student will develop professional skills in order to succeed in professions related to the computer field (CS 195 /SF 195 , CS 495 /SF 495 ).


The outcomes for the Computer Science major are assessed through a combination of written and performance examinations, written and performance assignments, practicum and internship supervisor evaluations and a completed capstone project. CS 499  requires a senior capstone project to be designed, completed and then presented to Computer Science faculty.
