Guide to Computing Careers Available: The Association for Computing Machinery has produced a guide to prepare students for careers in computing, one of the fastest growing sectors of the global economy. The brochure, 'Computing Degrees & Careers,” details what computer professionals do and describes the growing range of career opportunities available and identifies the major areas of study open to those with an interest in this expanding field. The accompanying Web site provides additional details about computing disciplines and major fields of study, as well as the “Top 10 Reasons to Major in Computing,” and “Skills You’ll Learn If You Study Computing.” The PDF brochure is available from the ACM Web site.
