To keep up with student demand, Montclair State University is expanding and combining its departments of Computer Science, and Applied Mathematics and Statistics, and has launched a new School of Computing. Given the explosion of opportunities in computing, technology and artificial intelligence, the new school is critical.
“As demand for computing jobs shows tremendous job growth, the establishment of the School of Computing comes at a pivotal time,” says Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Junius Gonzales. “Having a School allows for more synergies, formal collaboration and interdisciplinary opportunities for research.”
The school is housed in the recently renovated Center for Computing and Information Science building, where “Montclair State University will continue to capitalize on the success of its math and computer science programs to help prepare students for this future job growth,” Gonzales says.
In addition to providing a welcoming and supportive environment for all students from diverse backgrounds, Gonzales sees future collaborations with other disciplines across campus.
