The job industry in computing comprises a great deal more than just computer scientists. There is a demand for software engineers, game designers, network administrators, Web site designers, content producers and many others.
The second annual “Possibilities in Computing” conference at Rochester Institute of Technology is designed for guidance counselors, computing, math and technology teachers to learn about the latest job opportunities and degree programs. The goal is to share insight with educators so they can best help their students with college and career options.
The conference will be held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, in the atrium of the B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences. The conference is free.
The day will consist of panel discussions with industry experts, RIT faculty and students, a tour of the computing college and a presentation by the dean. RIT’s Golisano College currently offers eight undergraduate degree programs, nine graduate degree programs and a Ph.D. program.
