Both programs prepare students for a variety of careers in industry and government and for graduate study. Radford's Computer Science Concentration is accredited by the Computing Accreditation Commision of ABET(Acrreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). Such accreditation is based of the evaluation of the department's faculty, curriculum, computing resources, students and institutional support of the Computer Science and Technology degree.
The college requires its students to use multiple platforms and to learn multiple languages (Java and Visual Basic). Many students go on and take coursework in other languages (e.g. C++, Perl, Ada) and specialized platforms appropriate to their concentration. In this way, graduates of the program have a diverse background and are better able to handle the rapid change of pace in the industry.
