Computer Science Department
Computing offers many types of lucrative careers.
According to the Association of Computing Machinery: "Computing jobs are among the highest paid and have the highest job satisfaction. Computing is very often associated with innovation, and developments in computing tend to drive it. This, in turn, is the key to national competitiveness. The possibilities for future developments are expected to be even greater than they have been in the past."
