Computer Science Students Moving Beyond Coding

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, most computer science majors aren’t looking to code their entire lives. That’s why institutions like MIT are pushing their faculty members to become “bilinguals”, interdisciplinary specialists who have their feet in both computation and another discipline, better matching the real-world applications of computer science.

The takeaway? With more and more students choosing the in-demand fields of computer science and data science, how can we think about how our other departments can better collaborate in those fields and prepare all of our students for the future data-driven realities of their respective career paths?


May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
