Secondary Teacher Certificate

This degree program is offered in all three locations: Victoria, Sugar Land and Cinco Ranch. Secondary Certification is offered in Victoria and Katy.

The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with Computer Science Concentration from UHV is designed for students with one of three goals:

The computer science program emphasizes the development of the skills and analytical abilities necessary to specify, design, develop and manage computer-based solutions to commercial, scientific and industrial problems, and also to provide system level support and development. Easy access to state of-the-art computer facilities and software is available to all students in the program.

Our CS Concentration is a general Computer Science degree that exposes students to all the main areas of the field, including various aspects of programming, software engineering, computer organization, structure of programming languages, data base, operating systems and discrete mathematics. Students have opportunities to further their knowledge in more advanced and specialized subjects through concentration courses and electives in computer architecture, computer graphics, software project management, artificial intelligence, telecommunication & networks, numerical analysis, computer security, Java, Internet and Intranet, just to name a few areas. Students can find employment in a variety of organizations, both commercial and governmental. Some continue in Computer Science graduate work.

The lower division courses required include Calculus I and II and 6 hours of programming selected from Pascal, C/C++, Java, or Ada with at least 3 hours in C/C++ Programming (preferably 6).

The Department is a member of the Microsoft Academic Alliance and the Oracle Academic Initiative programs. This gives students opportunities to work with the computer industry standards in software development.

UHV offers concentrations in our BAAS program in Computer Information Systems, Digital Gaming & Simulation, Networking & Security, and Web & Media

We also offer a Master of Science in Computer Information Systems.
