November 22, 2017

KOKOMO, Ind. — Getting access to a high paying job in the tech-industry is possible now with a degree in computer science from Indiana University Kokomo.

The degree was added alongside the already established informatics program.

Forbes designated Indianapolis as one of the top 10 metro areas for technology growth. Jobs specifically available to computer science graduates, including software developer, computer programmer, computer and information systems manager, and network and computer systems administrator, are among the Hoosier Hot 50 Jobs.

Christian Chauret, dean of the School of Sciences, said there are not enough people earning computer science degrees to fill the jobs available.

“We strongly believe there is a need for a computer science degree in our region,” he said. “The technological field is the wave of the future, and computer science specialists will have plenty of jobs. This degree helps us fulfill the demand.”
