Cal State Schools Add CodePath CS Courses

Two California State University (CSU) school system campuses are working with CodePath.org to strengthen their computer science degree offerings. CodePath.org is a nonprofit organization that is partnering with campuses across the U.S. to incorporate courses that are designed by "the industry's top engineers."

CSU Monterey Bay is now offering CodePath.org's iOS development and cybersecurity courses for credit. CSU Dominguez Hills also has incorporated the nonprofit's iOS mobile development course into its offerings.

CodePath.org is specifically looking to work with colleges and universities "to expand the pipeline of computer science graduates of color who land jobs in tech."

"CodePath.org's courses are a model for how we can scale industry-relevant coding education at multiple campuses without reinventing the wheel each time," said Sathya Narayanan, a computer science professor at CSU Monterey Bay. "By bringing recruiters, engineering departments, and higher ed to the table, we're building a system that layers our faculty's existing expertise with high-impact training in fast-growing fields like cybersecurity and iOS development."

More information about CodePath.org's course offerings can be found on the organization's website.
