Too Many Computer Science Students
from the good-news,-bad-news dept
First the good news. There are more and more students majoring in computer science these days. That means more people to fill some of these open jobs (and yes, there are plenty of open tech jobs). The bad news is that universities are having a tough time keeping up and hiring enough faculty and having enough equipment to handle the rush of students. In many cases they’re hiring professors who don’t have PhD’s and aren’t tenured to teach. I think it’s important to help people get educated in computer science, and I do think in a lot of cases that you don’t need PhD’s teaching you – but that might depend on what the students want to learn.
