An Associate of Science (AS) degree, Computer Science Emphasis, provides the first two years towards a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science (CS) at most major universities.

This program aligns closely with the CSE program at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) for those planning to transfer locally to complete their BS degree.

CS classes also support degree programs in engineering, math and computer technologies.

Those interested in the field of cybersecurity can apply CS 151:Introduction to Cybersecurity, and CS 252: Digital Forensics Fundamentals to a minor in cybersecurity at UNR.

CS class sizes are limited to 24–30 students, and lecture and lab are both taught by the same instructor so that students receive one-on-one attention from the instructor.
