RIT, N.J. — Rutgers University announced Tuesday the launch of its BSN program for advanced degrees in computer science, with plans to enroll more than 2,000 students over the next three years.
The new BSN-degree program, known as the Graduate Certificate in Computing, will provide students with a formal program of study that prepares them for careers in software development, data science, data visualization and artificial intelligence.
It is a first for the university.
Rutgers Chancellor Steven Rhodes and Provost and Provident Tom Beaudry announced the new BSS degree program in a campus news release.
“This new program at Rutgers University will enable our students to take a step toward becoming the world-class software developers they need to be,” Rhodes said in the news release announcing the program.
“With the addition of this program, we will be making sure that every graduate of our graduate program is able to take the next step toward a career in the technology industry.
This is an exciting time for our graduates and the Rutgers community.”
The BSN is part of a broader initiative called the Swift Programming Language, which is being expanded and expanded.
The program is expected to offer over 100 BSS programs.
The BSS program is offered through the BSN Program Development Group, a consortium of schools, universities and corporations working to accelerate the development of the BSS programming language and its tools and techniques.
The consortium will also be expanding the Swift programming language.
The Swift program has received wide recognition as a top contender for top-tier graduate programs in computer programming, including the National Science Foundation and the Computer Society, and the program is a major driver of the exponential growth in computing.
