Computer science is one of today’s most in-demand degrees and will continue to be
as computing expands to nearly every aspect of daily life. Our program at South Plains
College trains the next generation of innovators to solve real-world problems and
improve the way people live and work. Computer scientists develop the programs that
run computers, from the small ones on your kitchen countertop to the large ones on
space-rockets and space-shuttles.
Computer scientists work in many industries from oil and natural gas to government agencies such as NASA. There is a constant, high demand for talented graduates in this field. We can be found in places such as the internet and telecommunications industry, hardware and software development companies, the entertainment industry, aerospace, robotics, health care, video games, and much more..
