Those who have pursued gradu­ate degrees have re­searched in areas such as software engineering, management information system, telecommunications, and information tech­nology.


PREFICS, which stands for Pre-Freshman In Computer Science, is an eight-week summer program for high school graduates. Selected students will have the opportunity to earn up to 7 credit hours in college level mathe­matics and computer science. These courses will develop and strengthen the students' problem solving and critical reasoning skills - the foundation of com­puter science.
