Software is not limited by physics, like buildings are. It is limited by imagination, by design, by organization. In short, it is limited by properties of people, not by properties of the world. – Ralph Johnson
Computing and computer technology are integrated into just about every aspect of our lives. From the way we communicate, to the movies that we watch, to the way we do business. The Computing Program at the Mount highlights the interaction of people, information and technology in a specific discipline.
As a student of computing, you will develop strong computing skills in addition to the knowledge and understanding of the content area of your choice while benefiting from the breadth of a liberal arts and sciences education. The University offers the following areas of specialty for students who want to pursue a technology based career:
- Computer Science with a choice of minor in a multitude of disciplines
- Web & Mobile App Development with a Technical Track or Graphic Design Track
In each program, you will develop problem-solving skills to address real-world issues while establishing a solid foundation of computing proficiency with leading-edge technologies through hands-on classroom activities and instruction.
Employers look for students who have strong communication and problem solving skills, and a firm grasp of current technologies as well as the skills necessary to adapt to the ever changing technology sector. The following is just a small snapshot of career opportunities for computing majors.
- database designer
