"An opportunity like this never would have come available to me if I had not taken the program in the Sault College/LSSU International Division," Hornblower said. "My employer was very impressed with the fact that I not only had a degree in computer networking, but the hands-on knowledge, as well. This is the main reason that I was hired."

Career Options
Did you know...?

Many who major in the field of mathematics combine those studies with education courses and obtain employment as teachers. People with mathematics degrees are found in a broad range of occupations where quantitative skills are needed; one of the largest employers of mathematics is the National Security Agency. Often a minor field of study (such as computer science) provides the supporting credential for entry-level jobs.

Teaching - A completion of a fifth-year internship and graduate course work qualifies you for elementary or secondary teacher certification in Michigan and Ontario, as well as reciprocity with several other states.

Graduate School - An undergraduate mathematics major with emphasis on abstraction, together with an analytical approach to problem solving, continues to provide strong preparation for graduate work in diverse fields — especially when combined with a minor in the related field.

The Computer and Mathematical Sciences program career options:

  • Senior Programmer - Designs, writes and supervises the development of large-scale software projects.
  • Systems Analyst - Works with customers to analyze organizations’ needs; sets up systems for company.
  • Database Administrator - Analyzes, designs and implements the database needs of an organization.



The background gained by this program provides a good preparation for graduate study in computer science, mathematics and other related fields.

"We created the computer networking degree a few years ago in response to a national demand for IT professionals with networking skills. Our graduates are reaping the benefits, as they are finding challenging, well-paying jobs."

Well Prepared

LSSU has a great reputation for placing Computer Science students in graduate and professional schools, such as:

  • Michigan State University

Research & IT Placement War Memorial Hospital, Sault Ste. Marie, MI

Robert G. Smith

The first component of this project involved research. The manager of the hospital IT department had a variety of topics that need to be looked into in order to keep compliant with HIPPA. Some of the areas researched were cloud storage and computation, full disk encryption (both managed and unmanaged), thin clients and VMware Viewer implementations. The second component was aiding the staff of the IT department in mission-critical activities. Computers would be setup with software, updates, and user accounts, printers would be deployed, and equipment decommissioned.
