  3. Kent State University's Academic Success Center provides Supplemental Instruction and Tutoring for a wide range of non-CS courses

Find a Job

  1. Why Computer Science?. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says that employment in the field will grow much faster than the average for all occupations, and there are far more new jobs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) for computing professionals than any other area. Moreover, the demand far exceeds the supply. As a result, computer science graduates are in high demand, both in Northeastern Ohio and elsewhere.
  2. Career Exploration and Development office provides career advice, assistance with resumes, and practice interviews. They sponsor Career Fairs and can assist with finding internships, part-time jobs, or full-time employment.
