This two-year program is designed to meet the requirements for an Associate of Science degree in Computer Science from CNM and prepare students to obtain a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science at the University of New Mexico. However, students from CNM seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions. Students should refer to the catalog of their intended transfer institution for admission, program, course and graduation requirements. Students should also consult a faculty advisor and/or the CNM Academic Advising Center.
Many of our courses are transferable to four-year degree programs, and CNM currently has transfer agreements with many colleges and universities in New Mexico and elsewhere.
Demand for workers in computer occupations is being driven by the continuing need for businesses, government agencies, and other organizations and industries to adopt and utilize the latest technologies. The ever-increasing use of computers and information technology has generated a need for highly trained, innovative workers in the field.
