Drinking Coffee Flusters

Going home for the holidays is always a fraught affair, especially for those who have an aptitude for technology. Your Uncle Joey needs your help getting rid of a nasty malware infection on his laptop, while Aunt Susan has missed her last dozen software updates and effectively bricked her iPhone. Meanwhile, your mom’s hard drive needs a serious defrag, and your dad is convinced that “enabling cookies” really wouldn’t be good for his cholesterol. All you really wanted was to just enjoy some mashed potatoes and catch up on Game of Thrones – so much for that.

Since your family already sees you as their personal tech guru, why not make an entire career out of it? Famed science personality Neil deGrasse Tyson was quoted in a recent Software Development Times article saying, “There is no greater education than one that is self-driven.”

We happen to agree with NDT, and that’s why we’re proud to offer some of the strongest technology masters programs in the western U.S., through our College of Computer and Information Sciences. Sharpen your systems skills with our proprietary Regis Cloud, learn cybersecurity tactics developed by the NSA or explore how we’re committed to bringing more women into technology leadership roles. We’re ready to help you take your tech skills from the dining table to the data center.

In that same SD Times article, Regis University’s very own Mohammad Abu Matar had this to say about the benefits of pursuing an advanced software engineering or computer science degree: “My own personal experience opened a lot of doors and gave me the confidence that hey, I could do anything; solve problems and take on new challenges.”

An advanced degree in computer science, software engineering or another technological discipline will arm you with deeper knowledge, a broader skillset and a far greater range of career opportunities. Degrees can be completed in as little as 24 months, with generous scholarships and financial aid packages available.

So what are you waiting for? You know you have what it takes – and so does your mom. Apply today and open the door to your new career. Classes start January 14.
