TSTC offers an Associate of Science degree in Computer Science, with a focus on applying credits earned to obtain a bachelor's degree from any four-year college or university. Students with higher mathematics skills and knowledge tend to have better success in this industry, so the foundation for this degree is math. Calculus I and II are required, but students are also required to take the prerequisites, College Algebra (MATH 1314) and Pre-Calculus (MATH 2312), before taking Calculus. This will allow students to improve any deficiencies or weaknesses in mathematics.
