Computer Science for Transfer, AS-T

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Program, Degree, and Certificate List

The Computer Science Department in the School of Mathematics, Computer Science and Engineering conducts a program designed for students who are developing computer science skills in preparation for transfer to a four-year college or university or an Associate in Science degree in Computer Science. Courses are intended to meet the needs of students at various levels of competence. The department acquaints students with the presently available methods of computer science that are useful in solving problems of science, industry, and government; prepares students for the additional formal education and self-education required in this ever-developing field; and fosters students’ abilities to solve computer science problems.

The Associate in Science in Computer Science for Transfer degree (AS-T in Computer Science) was developed to meet the requirements of SB1440, formalized as California Education Code §§66745-66749, by matching existing IVC course outlines of record to the Transfer Model Curriculum for Computer Science. This degree was designed to transfer to any CSU that offers a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science.

Pursuant to SB 1440, section 66756, to earn an AS-T in Computer Science, students must:

  • Completion of 60 semester units or 90 quarter units of degree-applicable courses.
  • Minimum overall grade point average of 2.0.
  • Minimum grade of “C” (or “P”) for each course in the major.
  • Completion of IGETC and/or CSU GE-Breadth.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Analyze a problem and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.
  • Use current techniques, skills, and tools necessary for computing practice.
  • Design, implement, and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component, or program to meet desired needs.

Total Units Required: 30

*Cross-listed course: Area credit given in one area only.

To earn the associate for transfer degree:
