The Computer Science Minor can be paired with any Major and is frequently taken in combination with a Mathematics, Engineering, or Physics Major. A Minor in Computer Science is the study of algorithmic approaches to problem-solving. Computer Science enhances technical skills for scientific applications with mathematical and analytical skills. A Major and Minor in Computer Information Systems or a Minor in Computer Science prepares students to effectively implement computer resources for organizations.
