The Department of Physical, Environmental and Computer Sciences (PECS) is dedicated teaching and research in the physical sciences and technology. The Department offers degrees in the following:
- Baccalaureate of Science degree (BS) in Environmental Science
- Baccalaureate of Science degree (BS) in Computer Science
- Associate of Science (AS) degrees in Computer Science
- Associate of Science (AS) degree in Science (Chemistry, Physics and Engineering concentrations)
To develop in our students high-level skills, such as problem solving, reasoning, and the ability to engage in research;
To prepare students for advanced study in graduate programs in Environmental Science and Computer Science as well as B.S. degree programs in Chemistry, Physics and Engineering;
To prepare students to compete for well-paying positions in the applied and environmental sciences; and
To prepare our students such that they may create their own position in society (e.g. consulting, entrepreneurship) regardless of the economic climate.
Students in the Department are expected to pass all departmental required courses with a grade of C or better. Students will be required to repeat any course on which a grade of C- or below is received before being permitted to go on to the next course in the sequence.
