CS at CCSU is certainly a wonderful program and I would not have obtained my career goals without it. I was able to start a career in my desired field right after graduation thanks to the wealth of knowledge, skills, and experience the program provided and the helpfulness and guidance of the faculty.
The skills I took away from CCSU extended far beyond what was contained in my textbooks. I learned how to meet deadlines, communicate with team members, and most importantly, how to make the big choices that will go on to define my career. The Computer Science Program at CCSU provided me the opportunities and advice I needed to decide what I wanted to do with my life. The heavy involvement of the faculty in all aspects of my experience at CCSU encouraged me to succeed and gave me the confidence to "put myself out there" to look for jobs. It only took me one interview - and a lot of patience - and now I couldn't be happier. As an information technologist at a higher-ed academic institution, I use many of the skills I acquired in the CS Program at CCSU, including using Linux, implementing network security protocols, and learning how to work with other experts from other departments, just to name a few. I intend to pursue a Master's Degree in Computer Science at some point in the near future, so the honor's program accreditation is a huge plus for me. All in all, I am glad that I made the choice to study Computer Science at CCSU.
