Computer Science & Engineering

This program kick-starts great careers by providing the first two years of a four-year bachelor’s degree in computer science, software engineering, or computer engineering – at approximately one-third the cost of a public university in Texas. Learn under outstanding AC faculty, and receive support from the College throughout the transfer process.

What can you do with a Computer Science & Engineering degree?


Computer science is one of the country’s hottest, most in-demand fields, and computer engineering is at the forefront. Computer engineers, among other things, design hardware for computing systems, network, and computer architecture; design software for applications; analyze and design microprocessors; and build interface systems. In turn, computer engineering has wide applications, impacting areas such as cybersecurity, wireless networking, design automation, computer networks, mobile computing, robotics, and more. Rewarding careers await.
