Computer Science at LAMC

Computer Science at Los Angeles Mission College is evolving to keep in pace with the technological standards. We are proud to offer programs for newly emerging technical jobs!

We offer Certificate of Achievements in Computer Programming, Cyber Security, Full Stack (Web Application) Development, Cloud Computing, Data Analyst, and Data Scientist. These certificates are ideal for professionals applying for technology jobs. Students may apply for internships, interview for entry-level IT positions, or advance towards earning an Associate, once they earn the certificate of achievement.

For high school graduates, we are working with high schools to create pathways to certificates and associate degrees.

Students in our program can take advantage of other events and activities where they acquire hands-on experience. We have a fully equipped lab for the Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition (CCDC), which our new club, Mission X, will participate in. The well-established Robotecas club offers a unique service to our community by providing hardware and software solutions for personal computers in our neighboring area.

We encourage you to partake in this growing field by enrolling in Computer Science courses that have no prerequisite:
