International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

Discrete Mathematics concerns processes that consist of a sequence of individual steps. The ideas of discrete mathematics underline the science and technology specific to computer applications. The Discrete Mathematics course provides the mathematical basis and concepts for applications in computer science: elementary logic, the logic of quantified statements, methods of proof, set theory, discrete functions, relations, counting and probabilities, sequences and mathematical induction, recursion, graphs, trees, and Boolean algebra.
