The computer science major at Palm Beach Atlantic University spans the range, from
theory through programming to cutting-edge development of computing solutions. The work of computer scientists falls into three categories: designing and building
software, developing effective ways to solve computing problems, such as storing information
in databases, sending data over networks or providing new approaches to security problems
and devising new and better ways of using computers and addressing particular challenges
in areas including robotics, computer vision or digital forensics.
“As a computer science major, my professors taught me to research and look for answers.
This has become a very important skill to have.” Pablo Martinez
