Program Description In the computer science program at Algoma University, you will gain a strong theoretical and practical foundation in the study of algorithms, programming languages, and the design and construction of computer systems and applications. The program is primarily concerned with the overall theory and application behind the design of algorithms, programming languages, hardware architecture, systems software, application software, and tools. Students will have a solid foundation in data structure, programming, assembly language programming, computer organization, operating systems, theory, software engineering, algorithms, and computer networking. Courses are also offered in artificial intelligence, human-computer interactions, web data management, Internet tools, among others. In the computer game technology minor, students will apply their foundational programming knowledge to the design and development of video game software. The program focuses on a complete overview of game development, from the initial code to the finished product, with courses covering computer graphics, the games marketplace, game artificial intelligence, and gameplay design. Students will develop skills in the analysis, design, programming, and testing of computer consoles, mobiles, PC, and hand-held video games. Graduates of this specialization often use their gaming projects courses to develop a sophisticated portfolio that can be used when seeking employment.
