  • CSU Global is Launching New Technology Programs in Fall 2019

    Colorado State University Global (CSU Global) is launching two new fully online undergraduate programs in Fall 2019, to help students prepare for careers in the ever-growing technology industry:

    The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is designed to provide students a working knowledge of industry elements, such as computer technology and mathematics. Upon developing coding, modeling and design, and algorithmic skills, students are prepared for such careers as computer programmers, software developers, and system analysts.

    The Undergraduate Certificate in Web Application Development, which will also be offered as a degree specialization, teaches students to create engaging website applications using various program languages, as well as how to analyze and test applications to ensure they meet quality standards. The skill set students develop within this certification serves as an asset to anyone working in technology or who’s looking to integrate interactive technology into their organization.

    The continued increase of technology-driven careers in all industries has created a high demand for skilled individuals in Computer Science and Web Application Development. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.org), tech job titles such as Software Developers and Web Application Developers are predicted to grow by 24% and 15%, respectively, by 2026 -- much faster than the average rate for all occupations.

    “As a leader in creating online programs meeting marketplace needs, we are excited to launch these two new programs this fall,” said CSU Global Provost and VP of Strategic Development, Dr. Karen Ferguson. “These programs prepare students with the technical skills employers look for today, and create opportunities for students to learn complex problem solving, critical thinking, and other skills needed for long-term career success in these highly dynamic fields.”

    Enrollment for these new programs is open now with classes starting in July 2019. Interested students should contact Admissions at 800-920-6723 or email admissions@csuglobal.edu to get started.
