Computing has become a necessary tool in nearly every area of human endeavor—critical to our workplace production, to our communication, and a means to play and to express ourselves artistically.
Computer scientists go by many names: programmer, software engineer, data engineer, system administrator, and web developer. They are driven people who want to contribute to solving the world’s problems. They know that while technical skills are important, teamwork, creativity, and empathy are just as important. At Centre, we get that! Our students learn not only to work by themselves, but how to work with others. Employers know that it takes a team to create a product, and students with the skills to work with others and understand multiple viewpoints will be valued members and leaders of these teams.
