Coursework and outcomes:
Alumnus Rylan Chong, '10, is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in computer sciences at Purdue University. He is the recipient of an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Award through the Indigenous Graduate Partnership. While completing his undergraduate CS degree at Chaminade, Rylan interned at Akimeka L.L.C., a Maui defense applications software company; was a delegate to national research meetings; and was awarded the Akimeka Prize for his work.
The computer science coursework and program learning outcomes are designed to fully prepare the student for today's IT workplace or for graduate studies.
The demand for qualified IT security professionals has never been greater. Threats to networks, applications and data are evolving at exponential rates. According to Department of Labor statistics released in 2010, the demand for computer security specialists is growing at a rate of 30% through 2018 as businesses and governments invest heavily to protect vital computer networks. Nearly 450,000 college graduates per year will be needed to meet this demand. Cybersecurity and networking jobs are:
Chaminade has developed strategic partnerships to design our program with input from government organizations, business and industry in Hawaii that need our computer science graduates. These partnerships will encourage establishing teams of faculty, students, and workplace leaders to implement real-world projects. Our partners include:
Chaminade’s new CS programs are designed to give our graduates the knowledge and experience to get a computer career right out of school (or continue to specialize in graduate school.) The new program focuses on training you for today’s careers in computers:
