For people considering a degree and career in computer science, engineering, finance, accounting, information technology, or other technical discipline – there’s a site they may want to check out. It’s called College Scorecard.
The federal government’s recently redesigned website provides data from over 7,000 colleges and universities. That data includes tuition, graduation rates, SAT scores, average salaries post-graduation, and other information people can use to decide if the school is right for them. The site includes the option to sort by size, programs, location and other filters.
It’s just one small part of a larger effort on behalf of the government to encourage and bolster the pursuit of STEM careers – a much-needed and sought-after skill set at companies these days.
