What is an Area of Career Interest?

An Area of Career Interest (AoCI) is a coherent group of Computer Science and related courses specified as a guideline to allow students to relate their computer science major to a particular professional interest or life goal.  "Coherent" implies that the courses chosen must all contribute to their knowledge in the chosen topic and how computer science impacts or is impacted by this topic. The courses chosen can come from more than one department and are intended to develop a student's knowledge in computer science and its relationships to their identified area of interest.

Sample AoCI's

The following are some suggested AoCI's. They are suggestions only. Please be aware that some courses are not offered every semester (or even every year) and thus you may have difficulty fitting courses into your schedule at the last minute. This is one reason to start thinking about an AoCI early.
