PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 19, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The University of Management and Technology
is an online higher education institution that helps its students receive meaningful degrees in areas like public administration, information technology, and computer science. It believes that technology is a promising career path for many of its students and children still in school; however, not many schools are actively teaching useful skills like computer programming and hardware design. According to an article on the Star Tribune, programming languages like Java, C+, and Python are crucial to teach in order to prepare students for a career in technology.
"Coding and learning programming languages are useful skills for professions outside of technology as well," comments a representative from the University of Management and Technology. "Our degrees in engineering, IT, and computer science are aimed to help students combine skills in math, science, and computers in order to demystify how they work."
The article claims that approximately 1.4 million computer-related jobs will open up within the next decade. Following recent trends, not even a third of those jobs will have qualified graduates to fill the positions. A lot of elementary and high schools, though, are starting to take advantage of apps and computer science classes to help kids learn how to program. Using teaching aids is important in terms of budgeting; it is costly for schools to hire on full or part time programming teachers. Instead, they depend on computers to do the work for them.
The article says that programming is like "looking under the hood of your car." Not everyone who is car-savvy becomes a mechanic, but the life skill is useful when a tire goes flat, a transmission dies, or any other car-related problem occurs. Today, computers are necessary for business success in virtually every industry. The Internet has also seen a rise in independent entrepreneurs in various capacities who utilize Web-based storefronts and social media to market, sell, and distribute products.
"Just about every job or profession can use computers to help business," the University of Management and Technology representative says. "Becoming computer-savvy has its own benefits as well. For one, you are more likely to find a job in any industry by illustrating your proficiency with technology. Businesses often do not have the time or money to train every employee how to troubleshoot basic problems, create a portfolio in Microsoft Office, or edit a website -- that's what IT employees are for, but everyone can benefit from taking coding classes."
Coding, like math, is a logic game full of punctuation, words, and numbers. Schools use apps that combine elementary lessons in coding with animation and visuals in order to keep students involved and interested. Not every person uses trigonometry on a day-to-day basis, though basic math fundamentals are useful to balance ledgers, pay taxes, and decide sales prices. Currently, students are hard-pressed to find coding classes outside of college. A lot of these students take advantage of online computer courses through schools like the University of Management and Technology.
The University of Management and Technology
has offered premium online courses in a variety of subjects since 1998. It focuses on designing intuitive, affordable, and applicable curriculums so students busy with work, families, and other duties can fulfill the requirements for graduation. It also offers cutting-edge computer science courses.
