Computer Science

Blending the theoretical with the practical, you’ll be well-versed in the why and the how of computer science.

At York College, you’ll get intensive training in common programming languages including C/C++, Java, Python, Scheme and several others. Our program is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commission of ABET, built on nationally-recognized standards, will give you all the experience, knowledge, and problem-solving skills to confidently apply for careers in the technical or scientific fields of computer science.

Hands-on training is standard here — our visualization lab and software engineering lab are complete with high-performance equipment at your disposal. Our courses take you through the design of complex software using agile software engineering practices through incremental analysis, design, implementation and testing. To better prepare you for whatever your job throws your way, you’ll also be introduced to a wide range of data structures and algorithms used in the computing industry.

Kinsley Engineering Center
Renovated in 2008 with design input from faculty, staff and students, Kinsley Engineering Center houses our entire program. You’ll have 24/7 access, computer access, study nooks, locker space, a canteen area — it’s a second home of sorts for our dedicated students.
York College engineering professors use hands-on learning with professional equipment.
Engineering Labs
We offer seven specialized lab settings: Automation and Robotics; Electronic Instrumentation; Embedded Systems; Signal Processing and Communication; Power Systems and Energy Conversion; Thermodynamics, Fluids and Heat Transfer; and Materials Science and Engineering.
The Kinsley Engineering Center has a full machine technology lab with metal and woodworking equipment
Harry E.Zumbrun Machining Technology Lab
We’ve dedicated 5,500-square feet for industry-standard machines and power tools of all sizes. You’ll get to start using them freshman year, learning shop safety and basic operation. You’ll have access to our weld shop and wood shop, too.
