Despite competition for basic and applied research funding in many fields, the most recent study from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicates that overall employment prospects for scientists and engineers should remain favorable. In fact, the BLS expects growth to be "particularly strong" in biotechnology and related fields as increased demand for medical advances driven by an aging population leads to increased research and development spending in these areas. As a result, significant job growth is expected among computer specialists, scientists and engineers – especially for those in the life and medical sciences.
CSUN, through the Tseng College, is addressing the educational needs of engineering and technical professionals as well as the physical needs of rapidly growing populations of seniors and those with disabilities through two interrelated, assistive technology master's degree programs: the Master of Science in Assistive Technology Engineering and the Master of Science in Assistive Technology Studies and Human Services.
These programs were developed in collaboration with and are taught by faculty from CSUN's College of Engineering and Computer Science and the College of Health and Human Development, both of which are nationally recognized for their expertise in their respective areas. In October 2011, the College of Engineering and Computer Science received a $5.5 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to help increase the number of minorities and low-income students studying in these fields.
