I am always excited about the experimental things I do. Part of my job is getting to explore and develop technologies we don’t even have yet. And that’s super exciting for me. Thus I applied for the computer science course at Elizabeth City State University.
The mission of our undergraduate program in computer science is to prepare students who are able to apply both analytical and practical computer science skills across diverse environments within a global society. Our goal is to produce marketable students in an ever-changing and increasingly competitive technological world.
