Charlotte Observer - 06/12/2017
Northeastern University’s Charlotte campus aims to fill the city’s shortage of high-tech workers with a new master’s program targeted at students without a background in computer science.
Charlotte’s technology sector has grown 28 percent in the last five years, and there are currently more than 92,000 technology and analytics jobs in the area, the school said. The university’s ALIGN Master of Science in Computer Science is meant to enable students with a variety of backgrounds to earn a master’s degree.
