Not Enough Computer Scientists

"There are currently about 530,000 computing jobs open in the US, but only 60,000 students graduated with bachelor's degrees in computer science in 2015.  A government study predicted that by 2020, there will be 1.4 million computer science related jobs available, but only 400,000 graduates with the skills needed to fill them." - The Week Magazine, volume 17 issue 815, page 32

 

To help solve this problem the WEC is hosting an IT STEM-Equity tour for middle and high school girls. We will be visiting the IT departments at the City of Simi Valley and Simi Valley Hospital.
