The Silliman University College of Computer Studies, abbreviated as CCS is one of the constituent colleges of Silliman University, a private university in Dumaguete City, Philippines. Designated as a Center of Development in Information Technology Education by the Commission on Higher Education, the college confers three undergraduate degrees and one graduate degree.BackgroundBrief historyThe College's origins can be traced to the year 1988 when the then Silliman University Computer Center was established to consolidate under one department all computer-related courses offered by the University. Back then, the computer center acted as a delivery unit for courses offered by other colleges such as the Bachelor of Business degree Major in Business Computer Applications then offered by the College of Business Administration.To centralize its course offerings in one institution and to comply with the Commission on Higher Education’s thrust to regulate the number of Information Technology Education degrees, a separate college named as the College of Information Technology and Computer Sciences was established by the University in 2001 which offered Bachelor of Science degrees in Information Technology and Computer Science. In 2002, a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Management was also added. In 2006 the College was renamed as the College of Computer Studies.
