Computer technology professionals are found in many lists of top jobs, and projections show that need continuing into the future. In addition, baby boomer retirements will create new opportunities for young people trained in computer science.
Dordt College computer science graduates have excelled in their field. We believe it is because our comprehensive Christian education helps graduates develop skills and understanding that allows them to be more than technicians. Employers say they find Dordt graduates to be responsible, well-trained professionals who can learn new skills, work well with others, and understand the broader context of technological processes.
In the past several years, almost all of our graduates found positions before or shortly after graduation, in positions including:
- network technician
- technical support specialist
