This program is designed to result in an Associate of Science degree in Computer Science and meets the general education requirements at all Idaho public universities.
College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program will help you build a foundation for a future in the STEM discipline. While completing your core classes, you will also have the flexibility and opportunity to explore the many facets of STEM as you discover areas of interest and passion.
If you already have completed a technical certificate program, the STEM degree builds upon knowledge already gained to expand your future opportunities.
Your STEM studies at CWI conclude with a capstone project where you will reflect on what you have learned and help clarify your path for academic and career goals.
The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) A.S. degree serves the purpose to develop a strong base in problem solving and scientific thinking within a flexible degree structure to prepare students for academic and career opportunities.
Why This Program
CWI's STEM program may be an excellent fit for students currently exploring their degree and/or career goals or who are wishing to pursue a STEM-related degree not offered at the associate degree level. The STEM degree provides flexibility for options while requiring a level of rigor in mathematics and sciences which can lead to a smooth transfer to upper division math and science coursework.
