If there’s one certainty in business, it’s this: business depends on technology. Which explains why the demand for computer science jobs is at an all-time high. In fact, job growth in the field is projected to increase by an astounding 18% through 2025.*
Fortune 500 companies, in particular, need computer science graduates to help them meet their large-scale software needs. That’s because getting their systems architecture right is often the difference between success and failure. These powerhouse organizations rely on qualified practitioners to deliver robust software architecture that increases scalability and reduces turnaround time, all while maximizing reuse and minimizing rework.
