Interactive Computing Technologies
Be a pioneer in smart technology and game design with our exciting new Interactive Computing Technologies (ICT) concentration for Computer Science majors!
With the emergence of revolutionary new technologies like motion sensing, image tracking, and touch-sensitive displays, computers are now able to detect and respond to human input in ways that were once unimaginable, and technology-based industries need people who can envision and develop new applications and new possibilities. Think of the fervor (not to mention industry growth and evolution) surrounding the iPhone and the Nintendo Wii. Think of the excitement of highly interactive games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero - and think of the myriad employment opportunities in global and multimedia computing applications, which include gaming/entertainment, security, education and more.
Through hands-on programming and experimentation, the new ICT concentration exposes you to emerging technologies, ensuring that you will have the skills and experience to make valuable contributions to this and related growing fields within computer science.
Along with the courses essential for studying Computer Science in depth, those concentrating in ICT also take:
VC 105 Introduction to Computer Graphics
CSC155 Programming for Games and Interactive Technologies
CSC335 Mobile Application Development
CSC401 Web Programming II - Interactive Web Applications
