Computational Science - Option

Computer Information Systems, Associate in Science

This option was designed for students who plan to transfer to The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey’s baccalaureate degree program in Computational Science. Upon completion of Atlantic Cape’s option, students will have fulfilled the first two year’s requirements towards a Bachelor of Science degree. They will have attained significant knowledge in mathematics and laboratory sciences. This knowledge will be augmented by an introduction to sophisticated computational software and computer program languages whose mastery will allow students to explore problems in the applications sciences.

For additional program information, please contact faculty advisor, Svetlana Marzelli, at (609) 343-5017/smarzell@atlantic.edu or contact the department chairperson, Otto Hernandez, at (609) 343-4978/hernande@atlantic.edu.
