The Computer Systems Option is for those students who wish to take up computer science as a career, and seek an in-depth understanding of computer science as an academic discipline. This option provides excellent preparation for those who plan to further their studies by pursing an advanced degree (masters or Ph.D.) in computer science, or for working for companies that require advanced mathematics, computing theory, or hardware design. This option is ABET/CAC accredited.
The Information Systems Option includes the core classes in computer science, but also incorporates a minor in business administration. In addition to providing a solid grounding in both fields, this program can position the student for entry into the four-term MBA program offered by Oregon State's College of Business. By following both these programs, the student can complete both a BS in computer science and an MBA in five years. (Note: admission into the MBA or any graduate program is predicated by acceptable grades in undergraduate coursework, an acceptable score on a standardized graduate school admissions test, and letters of reference.)
The Applied Computer Science Option is designed for students who wish to combine the study of computer science with an in-depth examination of a related field. This option may include a major or minor from that related field. Examples of approved programs include the multimedia minor and pre-medicine. Students must have an approved applied program before the end of their first term in the professional program.
Due to rapid changes in computer technology some CS courses have made changes in their content. We strongly encourage you to work with an Academic Advisor in the Computer Science department to develop your transfer plan.
For PCC courses that transfer to OSU, refer to Transfer Equivalencies above. If you plan to get an AAOT degree, all OSU Baccalaureate Core Requirements will be met by AAOT degree requirements. Be sure to take all other required courses.
PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
