Dr Keith Levi, Chair of the Department of Computer Science at Maharishi University of Management, spoke about the job prospects of graduates from his department and explained what those jobs would typically look like.
Virtually all of the students who complete their Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) degree find employment quickly with a US company, Dr Levi said.
He explained, in layman's terms, what it is that the students actually do in their jobs.
'Our graduates are the programmers,' Dr Levi said. 'They are not the people who are designing the websites . . . they are the people who are writing software.'
He added, 'If they go to work for an insurance company or some business like that, they are going to be writing the software, writing the logic that's behind the websites you see. . . . They are more often going to be the people who write the logic that sends the information out, gets the information back from the website, puts it in the databases, and gets it out of the databases.'
Since this explanation was still somewhat technical, Dr Levi explained further.
'If [the students] work for Microsoft they are the people who are writing Microsoft Windows and who are writing the email programmes that you use.'
When asked where a typical graduate might expect to work, Dr Levi explained:
A typical situation would be 'working from an office in a big city. Since most of our students are international students, they need to and want to work for a US company, so that's one reason they are going to go work in a setting like that.'
He added that the graduates are 'certainly highly capable of working on their own, in a startup venture'.
* Graduates have also found that no matter what circumstances they're working in, they are drawing not only on the expert knowledge and practical training they received in the MSCS programme, but also on the coherent brain functioning, increased creativity and problem-solving abilities, and ability to release stress they gain from continuing daily practice of Transcendental Meditation, which they learned as part of their academic programme.
