Computers are vitally important to America’s present and future prosperity, and the key to our continued leadership in this field is the talented IT specialists who make the “thinking machines” think. If you’ve got top-notch math skills, a mind that locks onto details, and the creativity to devise solutions to any problem, you could have a future in IT.
