When to apply for a bachelor’s degree in computer science: When it’s good and when it’s not
Posted April 15, 2019 11:27:56The last thing we want to do is throw a student who is not ready for college into the hole of a computer science major, and it can be a big risk, said David Bailenson, a professor of computer science at Albany Technical College in New York.
That’s why a computer scientist’s degree is so important, Bailensen said.
It gives a student the chance to build on what they already know and improve their skills.
“It’s really important to get into a program like this and do well and keep doing so,” Bailenson said.
Bailenson said that the computer science program in his department is highly selective, but it does have a good mix of students who might have a soft spot for computer science.
“We get some people who are going to get a good job and maybe a couple who are just going to be really good at their jobs, but they are not going to have the ability to go into the computer industry and do the kind of work that’s required,” Baily said.
If you’re looking for a computer lab or computer programming course, you might not want to apply to one of those.
“They don’t have the kind and the amount of computer engineering experience that they need,” Bairnson said, adding that some of the students might be able to get in the program if they have a strong computer science background.
The program in my department is also geared toward a lot of the people that are looking for the most important piece of information, the job.
“The program is geared towards people that have a lot in common, but are looking to get out of their comfort zone and work on new things, and that’s a great way to get involved,” Bose said.
Students have a wide range of experience in computer programming and computer science, said Paul Kowalski, a computer engineering and engineering technology professor at Georgia Tech.
“I think it’s a very diverse program.
There’s a lot to do, there’s a whole bunch of different things you can do, and the students are all very creative,” Kowalksi said.
It’s also not uncommon to see students who have never even attended college take their first computer class, said Brian Stoll, a program director at the University of Minnesota.
Stoll said it’s very common for students to go on to pursue a degree in any subject that they might want to pursue, but a computer degree is particularly important for students who want to make a career in technology.
“If you want to be an entrepreneur, or if you want a scientist, or you want somebody who wants to work with data, you should be going into a computer field because that’s where you can actually make a significant contribution,” Stoll said.
You can also take a class on programming with computer scientists, but that’s not the best option for people who want a computer job, said Bailen.
If you want computer engineering, computer science is the way to go, and then maybe some other degree, he added.
“You want to take something where you are actually applying to the computer field,” Bain said.
“You want the job in your hand.
If it’s going to pay the bills, you’re going to want it.”
