Launching the Experts for the Digital Age
Kent State acted swiftly in response to government projections that computer-related jobs will grow more than twice as fast as the average for other occupations in the next decade. With the endorsement of the administration, the university created a School of Digital Sciences that is the only one of its kind in the nation. The school's programs are unique in their focus on digital sciences in an enterprise environment. The school also breaks new ground by bringing together faculty from more than half a dozen disciplines.
Graduates will have expertise in business processes, information repositories, software development and underlying telecommunications infrastructure. As it prepares the next wave of digital-age experts, Kent State will spark economic development as an incubator for research in digital sciences and as a partner in projects within the academic and private sectors.
