Society today depends on computers for running everything from cell phones to banks to cars. The majority of challenges confronting our world today look to Computer Science for help in finding solutions. Whether it is understanding climate change, improving healthcare, fighting terrorism, discovering new medicines or improving literacy levels — Computer Science plays a significant supporting role. Every year there is a need for over 15,000 new information and communication technology (ICT) professionals in Canada, but our universities produce only a little over 7,000 graduates in ICT fields. Canada is not alone in this skills shortage. Demand for qualified computing professionals is growing internationally as companies expand globally.
