“Computer and information technology is one of the fastest growing fields in the nation. The Department of Labor anticipates nearly half a million new jobs by 2024, which is faster than the average for all other occupations, and we are uniquely qualified to prepare students to work within this field. All of our faculty have prior experience in the subject they’re teaching and remain current with emerging technologies. As many of our students work full-time, they appreciate the flexibility our technology classes offer both on campus and online. At RSU, we truly value real-world experience and practical application of this growing field of study.
