Discover Computing: Crossed Wires – Where will it take me?

Event providers: UCEN Manchester

Event Fallback Image

Since 2020, it is estimated that one million computer science jobs in America are going unfilled because there are not enough students graduating with the right skills.

Let’s fix this.

Did you know that a career in Computing can literally take you anywhere around the world because cybersecurity is at an all-time high? Skills in Computing are similar so if you’re willing to learn then you can always switch roles.

This workshop will explore the different career options and opportunities available and the pathways into a range of computing sectors you can take with tutors from the sector. Pathways that will be covered in the sessions are – Software Development, Network Security/Cybersecurity, Network Engineering, Computing/Computer Science. Oh, and hacking!!

The workshop includes a range of activities, UCEN alumni data, along with a Q&A panel with the host.

Available Wednesday afternoons.
