The UW Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing offers 100% online computing courses. All course content, from multimedia lectures and e-learning tools to homework assignments, will be delivered to you through the program’s online learning management system. You can study and do homework whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you.
Students are required to take each of the 21 technical- and business-focused courses in the curriculum. Due to the unique nature of the program, courses from other degree programs may not transfer in directly for Applied Computing courses. Only your campus adviser can determine how previous coursework might satisfy Applied Computing requirements.
Current students should consult with their campus adviser about setting up their academic schedule prior to registration. See course descriptions and upcoming course schedules below.
This course offers an introduction to the history of computing, fundamental computer concepts, and structured programming techniques. It provides hands-on coverage of simple data types, problem solving, program design, conditional execution, loops, and basic user-defined methods. Java will be used to teach the basic concepts of program analysis, design, implementation, debugging, and testing.
