students looking to step out of their comfort zone, and into an
opportunity to build skills that will serve them well, in a career or at home, across an entire lifetime.
Nontraditional fields refers to those occupations or fields of work, including careers in computer science, technology and other current and emerging high skill occupation for which individuals from one gender comprise less than 25% of the individuals employed in that occupation.
