College Vs. Computer Science

If you are interested in becoming a web developer or a software engineer, there are a few paths you can take. Two of the most popular paths are getting a degree in computer science or earning a coding bootcamp certificate.

A bachelor's degree in computer science takes about four years to complete. The curriculum is focused on providing students with foundational, theoretical knowledge of computation and problem-solving that will prepare them for a variety of careers.

"Computer science graduates have a strong grasp of software fundamentals like algorithms and data structures. Understanding how to use these and when they are applicable is very important for growing into a senior engineer role. On average, computer science graduates make stronger software engineers who grow further in their careers."

"A computer science degree will open a lot of doors. It's a common path into a development career and gives you great knowledge. The more complex your problems are, the more you're going to rely on the knowledge a degree gives you. You can gain some great skills from a bootcamp, but a degree will help you understand the theory and maths behind the code."

"I have hired three developers without formal degrees based on their skills and the certifications they have received. Coding bootcamp actually gives you more relevant and useful tools for a job than a computer science degree. While the degree sets you up with a solid foundation, a bootcamp teaches you specific skills that you can use immediately in a job.

"One of the biggest reasons for the gap in qualified developers and tech talent overall is that traditional education institutions have been slow to adapt. Often, the practices and training students learn in college aren't job-relevant, and they have to be re-taught on the job.

Computers are everywhere, from cell phones to cars. Increasingly experts use computer science in their work, from neuroscience to sociology to music. Oberlin provides a background in fundamentals of data science, logic, theory and programming, but we go beyond just coding. With an Oberlin CS degree, you will learn how the computer revolution is changing society and our lives, and how you can help shape its impact.

At Oberlin Computer Science students are more than a number. Our classes are gathering places, and we host over 40 special events a year including resume workshops, alumni talks, and affinity group lunches for international students, women and non-binary students, and students of color. We offer a broad curriculum with options for double majoring and exploring CS alongside other interests at a liberal arts college.

From smartphones to surveillance systems and automated machinery, sensor technologies and computers permeate our modern world. A new Oberlin learning community explores the liminal space between the physical and the digital.

From projects funded by the National Science Foundation to the Oberlin Summer Research Institute, students have the opportunity to collaborate with a faculty member on diverse research areas within computer science.

This course explores how humans interact with computers, and how computers mediate our interactions with the world. Topics covered include interface design, user studies, accessibility, and ubiquitous computing. We read current research papers in this area, and students complete a group programming project exploring some aspect of human-computer interaction.

Machine learning and data mining enable computers to learn to perform tasks without explicit programming, as well as discover interesting information from data. Students gain hands-on practice with popular machine learning and data mining algorithms, as well as discuss challenges, issues and solutions to working with complexities in real-world data.

By bringing the power of computer science to fields such as journalism, education, robotics, and art, Northwestern University computer scientists are exponentially acce
