The computer science education environment has changed dramatically over the past several years, especially as the demand for computer programmers and computer scientists continues to increase dramatically.
Traditional colleges and universities are still offering cutting-edge computer science degrees at all levels. These degrees typically focus on both the theory and the practice of computer science. As students advance past the computer science bachelor’s degree level, computer science becomes increasingly more research-oriented and can become extremely specialized. Exciting new academic programs in areas like machine learning, automated systems, and artificial intelligence are launching at academic institutions all the time.
The rise of alternative computer science education programs are reflecting the demand for a well-trained tech-literate workforce.
