This shortage is only expected to continue as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in this field will grow by 28% through 2026 - much faster than the average across all occupations. Graduates of the program will be equipped with skill sets related to the cutting edge of today’s high-tech/computing revolution as well as marketable career preparation as a result of Rider’s Engaged Learning component.
