CSEDWeek is December 5 to 11 (yeah, finals week, I know!). It aims to:
- Eliminate misperceptions about computer science and computing careers
- Communicate the endless opportunities for which computer science education prepares students within K-12, and into their higher education and careers
- Provide information and activities for students, educators, parents, and IT professionals to advocate for computer science education at all levels.
And, as this document shows, it is officially recognized here in Columbia, SC.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Engineering and Computer Science degrees pay more than liberal art. In case you didn't know (really?!).
The pay advantage of graduates with technical degrees often persists throughout their careers, said Fort Collins, Colo.-based career counselor Katy Piotrowski. Although liberal arts majors have a wide range of salaries, Ms. Piotrowski said that mid-career liberal arts majors she works with in northern Colorado make between $60,000 and $70,000. Those with technical degrees make at least $10,000 more.
Technical majors even have an advantage in fields that are typically hotbeds for liberal arts majors, she said. "Technical degrees are valued in all fields. I've a seen a [company] communications department actually prefer that someone have an engineering degree rather than a communications degree," she said.
