$1 Million NSF Grant

Drs. Gary Krenz, Tom Kaczmarek, Dennis Brylow and Marta Magiera received a $1 million National Science Foundation grant to help low-income, academically talented students quickly learn the skills needed to change careers into computing.

The award will build off an innovative I.T. Boot Camp piloted in 2013, resulting in long-term employed adults completing Masters of Science degrees in computing.

The grant, which will fund a program called COSMIC (Change Opportunity-Start Masters in Computing) calls for 24 adults seeking to change professions to take part in a customized curriculum, which will provide a pathway for rapid career transition.

While the I.T. Bootcamp will be delivered in a face-to-face setting, the master's of science in computing programs' online offerings will provide incoming students with additional flexibility. The online offering was ranked the #20 Best Online Graduate Computer Information Program by US News and World Report in 2016.
