Web Computing is a sequence in the Computer Science major.
Computer scientists use computers to solve problems no one has successfully solved before. Programming is at the heart of what they do, writing and designing sophisticated code. Having a strong skill set in theory, math, logic, and science are also essential to their success.
The Computer Science program at Illinois State is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET.
In Web Computing at Illinois State, you'll study web and mobile application development. The sequence focuses on sophisticated software development. It also covers other standard computer science topics such as theory, design, hardware, and operating systems.
Why Study Computer Science - Web Computing?
You’ll learn state-of-the-art web development design principles, methods, and technologies. We also take on real-world projects that address topics such as:
- Client and server-side scripting – write instructions for either a web browser or server to perform
- Web interface design – make sure websites are easy to use
- Web frameworks – create templates that make the development process faster
- Mobile application development – design software for smartphones and tablets
- Web database processing – learn how information is stored and retrieved on the internet
- Web application testing and evaluation – identify weaknesses in software and come up with solutions
