Facebook Invests $4M To Expand Northeastern University’s Align Computer Science Master’s Program – Geekwire
Facebook has invested $4.2 million to expand Northeastern University’s computer science master’s program that helps people from other fields get into tech. The investment will also help to expand the program to other universities. The Align program focuses on women and minority representation in technology and helping people who don’t have computer science education or tech experience get into the field. Facebook’s investment will fund eight credit hours of coursework for 200 students. Northeastern’s Align program began in 2013 and today there are 575 students enrolled across Northeastern’s locations in Seattle, Boston, Silicon Valley, San Francisco and Charlotte.
