Computer Science at BCC and UMD: The CIS Department'scomputer Science transfer option is a true 2+2 curriculum with seamless transfer to UMD. If you are interested contact Priscilla Grocer, Igor Kholodov, Sil Ferreira or Ralph Sanford. This curriculum was made possible because of a National Science Foundation Grant. The first two courses are CIT73 and CIS73. CIT73 is a course that deals with the concepts of object-oriented programming while CIS73 is the first course in Java. The two courses can be taken together if you want to stay on a two year curriculum, or the CIT73 can be taken first. For real tutition savings, look into Joint Admission between BCC and UMD in Computer Science

Computer Forensics:The CIS Department and the Criminal Justice Department recently received a National Science Foundation Grant to develop a degree option and certificates in Computer Forensics. We are very excited about this option. For more information contact Priscilla Grocer.

Portfolio: This year we are starting a portfolio development project for all career students. The portfolio will be started in CIS17. As you take other CIS/CIT courses and develop your skills, we want you to add to the portfolio. During your capstone course we will help you develop and refine the final product for evaluation.
