New Certificate in Computer Science Teacher Education

Denver South-CS Teacher Certificate

Starting this fall, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering is offering a certificate in Computer Science Teacher Education at the new CU South Denver location (located at The Wildlife Experience). This is a four course certificate that will prepare middle and high school teachers to teach computer science courses. This certificate is an excellent opportunity for educators to gain a strong working knowledge of computer science and to prepare themselves to develop computer science courses at their schools!

The first course in the certificate will be offered this fall:

CSCI 6010: Principles of Programming

Mondays and Wednesdays, 5:30 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.

This course introduces students to fundamental principles and techniques in the design and implementation of modern programming such as C++, Java. Students learn how to write programs in an object-oriented high-level programming language. Weekly laboratory assignments will provide hands-on experience in this course.

Information regarding the certificate and the new CU South Denver location can be found online at and on the attached flier. Please contact Sarah Mandos at or call 303-315-1411 if you have any questions.
