Minor in Computational Technology

A Computational Technology minor is designed to meet the demands of employers for more graduates who know how to solve complicated societal problems using computers.  A Computational Technology minor combines software development skills with selected courses in an information technology cognate discipline and mathematics.  Cognate disciplines currently include Geographic Information Systems, Journalism and Mass Communication, Library Information Systems, and Management Information Systems.  A minor in Computational Technology will provide you with the ability to solve a variety of problems in your chosen interdisciplinary field.

A Computational Technology minor consists of:

  • A minimum of 18 credit hours, including CS 1323 and CS 2334
  • 6-9 credits from a single selected cognate discipline (GIS, JMC,LIS or MIS), at least 6 of which are at the upper division (3000 or 4000 level), and one mathematics course chosen to complement the cognate discipline.
  • At least 9 credit hours in the minor must be taken at the University of Oklahoma.
  • A minimum grade of C is required in all courses which are applied to the minor and in all prerequisite courses for the minor.
  • College of Engineering academic policies regarding repeating courses apply.
