  • electrical engineering
  • computer science
  • business administration/management
  • economics/finance
  • information sciences & systems
  • computer engineering

  • marketing/marketing management

Four out of ten, a whopping 40%, are computer science degrees! That means when students invest their time and money in computing degrees, they are making a good investment. Employers need to find computing graduates to keep their businesses running. This trend is projected to continue well into the future.
