Top IT Trends to Look for in 2017

As anyone pursuing a graduate degree in an IT field knows, the industry changes quickly. Keeping up with trends is part of your job description when you work in computer science or software engineering. Where is IT heading in 2017? Here is a look at some of the top trends:

Automation

Automation certainly isn’t a new trend, but big changes are expected over the next few years for this IT feature. This means that IT professionals will need to move away from scripting and move toward defined task workloads and to automation based on data fed via operations. A good way to take steps toward the future of automation is to focus on automating script recovery and building more structured scripts.

Big Data Analysis

There is a large demand for big data analysis because of its problem-solving abilities. Consider a police department looking for more efficient ways to patrol a city. Using big data analysis, they can identify concentrated areas of crime in the city based on both real-time and historical figures and adjust their patrolling to focus on those hot spots. Data can even help them spot patterns of certain types of crimes in certain areas. The demand for this kind of big data management and analysis is huge, but there is a lack of people trained to analyze data of this magnitude in the field. This represents an opening for people in graduate programs who are about to enter the career field.

Open Development

Even though only a fraction of enterprise applications can be scaled horizontally, open development is increasingly in demand. For people working in IT departments, this means looking toward the future and preparing to adopt open-standard hardware and software when current contracts expire.

Keeping up with the constantly evolving world of IT is all in a day’s work for students at Seattle University College of Science and Engineering. Whether you’re ready for a career change or want to pursue a graduate degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering in Seattle directly out of your undergrad studies, we have a program for you.

Can Your Computer Science Career Make a Positive Difference in Society?

Pursuing a graduate degree in computer science doesn’t just pave the way for you to enter one of the most in-demand career fields in the world today. It also gives you the tools to create a positive impact on the people around you—locally, nationally, and globally. There are numerous ways you can use your Master of Computer Science degree to contribute to society. Here are just a few of the things you can do to use your education to make a difference:

Make People Safer

Security is on everyone’s mind, from people sitting at home with their families to international corporations and governmental institutions. Computer science holds the key to increasing safety for everyone. Whether you focus on building better data analytics abilities for people who are tracking threats or creating systems that protect individuals from identity theft and other digital violations, the work you do can directly improve security in your own community and beyond.

Power Non-Profit Solutions

Technology has made it easier to bring people together for any number of reasons, including fundraising and non-profit events. If you’ve ever used a fundraising platform, you’ve used the work of a computer scientist who has made it possible for people in need to get help. Computer science makes it easier than ever for non-profits to minimize their overheads while connecting with their donor base more efficiently.

Increase Access to Education

Thanks to computer science, education is no longer bound to the classroom. Online learning and collaboration is already possible, and your training can allow you to create even better solutions. By creating new platforms, you can make education possible for people in corners of the world who have never had access to it, with life-changing effects.

With a Master of Computer Science from Seattle University College of Science and Engineering, you’ll have the power to build the career you want while creating a legacy of positive impacts on the world around you.

What You Need to Know About Open Source

One issue of major significance to students in our software development and computer sciences master’s programs is open source. Open source is an ongoing driving force behind a number of innovate and revolutionary programs, and to survive in the industry, you have to understand it and its impacts.

Open source software development lets you harness the brain power of developers and engineers everywhere to further your program’s goals. In fact, making software that is open source is a requirement to stay relevant and to evolve with the demands of the people using your program. Nearly every successful software platform has open source incorporated into their systems. Doing so not only makes it easier to keep up with rapidly changing technology but also makes you a larger community of developers who can be helpful to your career in a number of ways.

At Seattle University College of Science and Engineering, you will tackle issues like these as you work towards your graduate degree or graduate certificate. If you’re ready to find out more about our masters programs and admission requirements, please call (888) 457-5227.

Do I Really Need an Internship?

In graduate programs, many students approach the idea of internships with a combination of dread, nervousness, and even resentment. They often wonder why they need to complete an internship when they are engaged in such in-depth study, especially if they have already worked in the field. However, internships are integral, valuable parts of graduate programs, and after completing them, students frequently view their internships as one of the most important parts of their educations. If you are dreading the idea of doing an internship, consider the following benefits.

Get Hands-On Experience

No matter how much time you spend in the classroom, hands-on experience is a necessary component of becoming proficient in a topic or task. Internships fill in that gap in graduate programs. You will get a chance to see the real world applications of the topics you are studying and become more proficient at applying them. Internships close the circle between the classroom and the workplace so that you’re ready to jump into your new career when you graduate.

Build Soft Skills

In the classroom, you may learn how to lead a software design project or manage systems, but you can’t learn the social norms of the industry, how to interact with company leadership, and the impact of office culture on working life. For this kind of knowledge, you have to have an internship. Internships lift the veil on life in your chosen industry, so you can see things like how most people in your field dress for work or how strictly hierarchy is followed in the office. These soft skills are important complements to the knowledge you’re building in the classroom and can give you a competitive edge when you try to get a job.

Make New Contacts

A contact you make during your internship could be the difference between getting a job and being passed over for another candidate. Even if you have already worked in the field, internships are opportunities to make new connections. The people you meet during an internship could become the most important people in your new career.

Internships are part of our master’s programs at Seattle University College of Science and Engineering to help our students get ahead in their chosen careers. To find out more about all of our course requirements for our graduate degrees in Seattle, please call (888) 457-5227.
