By Jennifer Zielinski-LevinThe Associated PressAUSTIN, Texas — The college of William Mitchell is not only home to the University of Texas, but it also is one of the nation’s most elite.
Its flagship university is the state’s only public four-year college.
Its graduates are among the most highly sought-after in the country, and many earn their doctorates with only a few months to go before graduating.
But the job market is still tough.
Only about 1 in 10 high school graduates is employed, according to the Texas Department of Education, which is the biggest barrier to entry.
The college has an enrollment of just under 1,000 students, which means it can afford to do little more than keep up with demand.
The average salary for a four-years bachelor’s in education at the Mitchell school is $45,000, a far cry from the $75,000 it was worth when it was founded in 1962.
And while the Mitchells have made a name for themselves by teaching history and engineering, they’ve struggled to fill positions that are traditionally filled by more traditional colleges.
They’re not the only high school that struggles.
At least two other states have been struggling to fill the high school gap.
Statewide, about half of bachelor’s degrees earned in the United States are in the high-tech field.
But that is changing.
Tech giants such as Google and Microsoft have attracted more and more students in recent years, and the demand for computer science and engineering programs is rising.
Some states are seeing this boom in demand, and they are turning to higher education to fill that demand.
While the need for college graduates in high-demand fields is greater in Texas, many of the state`s universities have struggled to attract them.
The Mitchells, a small college located in Austin, have been among the state leaders in offering computer science degrees.
The school’s undergraduate degree program, called Bachelor of Science in Information Systems, is one such program, but the school also offers four- and six-year programs in information technology, computer programming, marketing and business management.
It is a job market that needs the right education, said Laura Schoen, a computer science major at William Mitchell who earned her bachelor`s degree last year.`We have to educate the next generation of people that are going to be the future of technology,` Schoen said.
`I`m trying to do the best that I can do for myself, but I`m also trying to be a part of the solution.`The need for computer programmers and computer scientists is growing, and we need to keep it up, said John T. Jones, the Mitchell dean of the school.
The school`s success at attracting students with the right skills is a key component of the Mitchell`s efforts to grow the college.
The new computer science program is designed to be open to any computer science degree and the school offers online courses to those who can’t take classes in person.
It is the first of its kind in the state, and Mitchells has no plans to close the program.
The program is available to anyone who is a computer programmer, a software engineer, a developer or a teacher.
To attract more students, Mitchells started by teaching computer science classes on campus in the fall and offering online classes for students who cannot attend classes in-person.
At the same time, the school created a partnership with UT-Austin to offer courses online to students who want to pursue their bachelor’s or master’s degrees.
For example, if you have a computer programming degree, but not a business management degree, you can take courses online and get credit for it.”
It`s just really a matter of putting in the time and effort and putting in a lot of work to create that relationship,” said Jon Givens, the associate dean of Mitchell.
At William Mitchell, a major focus of the initiative is to train the next wave of computer programmers.
The schools goal is to produce more than 5,000 computer programmers in the next five years.
There are about 300 students at William Masters, but more students are going into graduate programs.
Some are in accounting, while others are studying marketing.
It has been difficult to find enough computer programmers to fill a shortage.
And many people are reluctant to pursue a career in information systems, Jones said.`Our hope is to get computer programmers into the workforce at a high rate and then we can move into an information systems career in the future,` he said.
The Mitchells also recently introduced a new online program called Masters in Information Technology.
The degree is intended to prepare people for careers in information management, technology systems, and engineering.
The online program, which starts in fall 2018, will focus on computer programming and computer science.
There is no requirement to have a degree to take the online course.
