Are you looking for a new career or are interested in technology?

College and university graduates interested in expanding their credentials should attend Algoma University’s Accelerated Computer Science Degree Information Night on Wednesday, February 18 at 7 p.m. in the Doc Brown Lounge (EW205).

Students who choose to enroll in the accelerated program can earn their Computer Science degree in as little as 12 months.

Students will learn software development, android programming, data structures, database programming, assembly learning programing, operating systems, networking, and much more.

Market indicators suggest that students with a background in Computer Science are quickly employed after graduation, and their average starting salaries are higher than almost any other degree.

“There is a need for specialists in the field of computer programming. Obtaining computer-oriented skill development will help both the unemployed and underemployed in an effort to expand their career prospects. This program affords students an opportunity to quickly develop a skills set that will add value to their resume, and a competitive advantage in the workplace,” said the Registrar of Algoma University, David Marasco.

Students in the program will earn either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, depending on their prior credentials.

They will begin their studies in May, taking accelerated classes throughout the spring and summer terms, before joining regular programming in the fall.

They can complete the program as early as April 2016.

To be eligible for the program, students must possess a bachelor’s degree in an unrelated field or a diploma in computer science.
