Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with an Emphasis in Big Data Analytics

Offered By: College of Science, Engineering, & Technology

BS in Computer Science

Grand Canyon University’s Bachelor of Science in Computer Science prepares students for career options which include computer systems analyst, networks specialist, database manager, programmer and software engineer. Students learn algorithms, discrete structures, programming languages, software development, networks, operating systems and computing systems fundamentals. Students also learn professional and ethical practices associated with computing through the lens of our Christian worldview. Students will explore the problems and trends associated with the management of huge volumes of data, gaining fundamental knowledge in the design of highly scalable systems that can collect, process, store and analyze large volumes of unstructured data.

Competencies include large scale data processing, data mining and interpretation, pattern analysis and data-based decision making. This program integrates math, chemistry, physics and biology and emphasizes critical thinking, real-world application and practical project experience. In addition, students develop valuable workplace skills, including effective communication, teamwork, initiative, strong work ethic, analytical skills, adaptability and self-confidence. Students entering the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science program should possess knowledge of algebra and common office software applications.
