Skilled science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) professionals are in high demand in nearly every industry, including healthcare, manufacturing, government, retail, transportation, communications, education, insurance, finance, security, and law enforcement. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, tech careers are growing at a higher rate than other professions, and a recent survey found that 90% of C-level executives agree that hiring and retaining technology talent is a top business challenge.
The University of Wisconsin Bachelor of Science in Applied Computing program prepares IT professionals to transform computer science from theory to practice and solve the everyday technical issues that organizations face. Students who complete the program will demonstrate a solid foundation in core computer science, demonstrate strong understanding of software engineering practices, recognize and address security issues, implement a computing solution for a business problem, demonstrate effective oral and written communication skills, and demonstrate a solid foundation in data management.
Students are encouraged to participate in internships that provide opportunities to apply what they learn in work or field settings, but no internships are required. The bachelor’s degree course APC 495: Capstone requires a student to complete a field experience project with the goal of gaining valuable, hands-on experience in this field.
