Organizations increasingly depend on computer-based data collection, organization and analysis to inform their decisions

We live in a digital world. Whether a problem revolves around engineering, science, or business, inevitably, the solution will have “computing” at its core. The “search engine” has now become a ubiquitous presence in our personal and professional lives as a means to readily accessing information needed for decision-making that only a few years ago would have required armies of researchers and days or weeks to compile and organize.  

Computing is a growing and continuously evolving discipline that provides ongoing opportunity for its graduates.  Businesses and other organizations  increasingly depend on computer-based data collection, organization and analysis to inform their decisions and professionals who can “bridge” computing and business are in high demand worldwide.

Computing is of course about developing code and software, but it takes more than keystrokes to build an idea into a “product”.  It takes collaboration and teamwork, and understanding other disciplines and their needs.  It takes both managerial and technical skills. And it takes creativity and the ability to lead.

ACT's Computing curriculum is a rigorous and challenging program that provides students with not only theoretical background but also the practical skills needed by organizations and companies across the board.  Still aiming to provide a well-rounded education, not only expert functional training, the program allows students to readily combine Computing studies with other disciplines such as Business, Psychology, etc.   And the school's IT labs and the Niarchos Technology Center make state-of-the-art IT facilities easily accessible to students in the program.
