BestValueSchools, a website that evaluates colleges and universities for the return on investment that their education offers, has ranked Michigan Tech’s computer science program 14th among the top 30 computer science programs in the country.

The rankings took into account program demand, computational aptitude of students, research and development, and the return on investment based on salary reports by Payscale.com.

Describing Michigan Tech’s computer science program, BestValueSchools said: “If you’re interested in gaming, take a close look at Michigan Tech’s concentration in Game Development. You’ll get plenty of hands-on experience at this accredited computer science school as you learn to design and develop cutting-edge interactive games. A team-based approach leaves you well-prepared for a collaborative work environment after graduation, and some of the skills you learn can transfer to other fields besides gaming (virtual reality, for example). Michigan Tech also runs a few notable master’s degree programs, including a popular MS in the fast-growing field of cybersecurity. This degree even includes three subspecialties, so you can further refine your studies.”
