Programming will be the fastest growing occupation throughout the next decade. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 1.4 million programming jobs to fill, and two thirds of these jobs are outside of the typical Silicon Valley technology sector. This includes high level jobs in industries such as manufacturing, automobiles, medicine, agriculture, finance, and more. By the time current students are a part of the workforce, software engineering will be in peak demand.
All technical and computer-related jobs are growing significantly faster than the market as a whole, increasing from the current need by up to 31%. Parents and students demand more educational options to ensure their children are prepared for the workforce they will be entering as adults.
