Computer science is the basis for much of the tech sector’s growth in terms of economic impact, career opportunities, and innovative products and services.
The good news is that jumping into computer science, either with a traditional bachelor’s or master’s degree, or via new forms of professional training such as bootcamps or professional certification programs, has never been easier.
Not only are educational and training programs more available and accessible than in the past, but career opportunities — everything from computer coders to engineers and product managers — are becoming widespread across industries.
The following guides cover important issues when trying to transition into computer science — such as “how to get into computer science,” what kind of computer science degree program to pursue, and some of the most common programming languages used today.
These guides are intended for both people and students planning for a computer science education and for early career professionals looking to transition a career into computer science.
