Computer Science courses (CS courses) are offered by the Computer Science department. The department is committed to provide students and the community with the training, academic studies, and valuable hands-on experience necessary for employment in the Information Technology industry. To ensure current and relevant curriculum in this dynamic field and further its commitment to excellence, the department actively pursues partnerships with state and area employers, other colleges and baccalaureate institutions, and advisory committee members from IT related fields.
Students may earn a two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree, which has seven options: Database Administrator, Help Desk Technician, Information Technology, Internet Specialist, Multimedia, Network Administrator, and Programming and Software Development. Furthermore, students may earn one of the many certificates which are a subset of the two-year degrees.

Computer Science Program Outcomes:
New students may apply to CBC and begin taking Computer Science classes any quarter of the year. Classes are offered in several formats, day, night, online, and hybrid. Many classes can be completed at an accelerated pace.
The Columbia Basin College Computer Science department (CBC CS) acknowledges that students may have mastered specific skills and competencies outside of the formal classroom experience, For example, you have gained work experience or may be self-taught. Both CBC and the CS department recognize various non-traditional programs and will possibly award a student college credit and/or placement in advanced classes. In accordance with the CBC Non-Traditional Credit Policy, the CS department provides two methods for earning non-traditional credit and/or placement: Passing a challenge test or presenting proof of a current industry certification.
The CS department has also developed articulation agreements with several of the local school districts. These articulation agreements grant high school students college credit for taking specific high school classes. Students in the local K-12 school districts should check with their advisors for the availability of these classes.
