Computer Science

Computer Science (CS) is one of the fastest growing occupations in the United States, with the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics estimating 16% job growth in the next decade. We understand the importance of gaining skills in this technology field, as many careers that potential students are interested in require at least minimal training in computer science (e.g. bioinformatics, statistical analysis, business analytics, engineering, etc.).
