Computer science major is cool again – Network World “If you take a look at the number of jobs that are going offshore, it’s a small percentage of IT jobs,” Luftman says. “We know that companies are identifying more opportunities to leverage IT, which is going to increase the demand for IT professionals. If you take into consideration the number of Baby Boomers nearing retirement, the number of available IT jobs will far exceed the pipeline of students that are going to be available.”
This is a great opportunity for our students. MDC Students can qualify!
