Computer Science

The Computer Science degree is still the coin of the realm in the tech industry. The best educational deal in the state is for students who take advantage of the California Community College Computer Science Associate Degree for Transfer as a smart and economical way to transfer to a CSU to complete their CS Degree.

Because some degreed individuals (of any background) seek to advance their coding and software development skills as incumbent or career changing workers, we sent a researcher to speak to companies large and small throughout the Bay Region and determined an effective roadmap for a transition to a job in software development or computer science with CA Community College courses.
