Message from the Chairs

From its early beginnings, approximately 50 years ago, computers have become the primary engine behind much of the world’s growth and the rise of a global community. Computers are indispensable in virtually all fields of human endeavor today. New jobs in the field of Computer Science are rapidly emerging. Just 30 years ago, only large companies had computers. Today, there is scarcely a business or industry that does not utilize the computer in some way.  Just a glance at the want ads in any newspaper shows the diversity of jobs that exist for people with a Computer Science degree.

Computers process the daily transactions of the world’s banks, the data of communication satellites, the images of video games and films as well as the fuel and ignition systems of automobiles. Computer software is as present in the areas of education and entertainment as it is in science and business. There is virtually no field or profession that does not rely upon the problem-solving skills and production expertise of computer science for the efficient processing of information thus providing employment for computer scientists in roles ranging from pure theory and design to programming and marketing.

This enormous demand for expertise in computing and the vision of success has attracted so many students to this field that at NYIT it has become one of the largest and most active disciplines on campus. The Computer Science program at NYIT is unique in that, in addition to the traditional courses in hardware and software aspects of computers, students may select options, and gain a solid background in the application of computing knowledge. All students have access to sophisticated computer equipment in up-to-date laboratory facilities, and graduates of the program can expect to find job opportunities in all major industries. Our faculty, with advanced degrees in computer science and electrical engineering, coupled with industrial and research experience, bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the classroom.
