Our degree program combines computer science and computer engineering to offer students a complete foundation in both computer hardware and software. A 2012 survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers placed both computer science and computer engineering on its list of the top 10 bachelor's degrees for 2013. Our graduates have skills in both areas, giving them a versatile skill set valued by employers and graduate schools.
Graduates of the program can tap into a strong gaming market in the region or seek employment in industries ranging from military to software to cyber security. Nationwide, demand for computer scientists and engineers is strong, as the need for trained computer scientists and engineers is growing in fields ranging from health care to education to business.
Computer science and engineering can be a lucrative field for graduates. A 2011 study by the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce reported that bachelor's degree holders in computer science had median earnings of $98,000, making it the third-highest paying major for bachelor's degree students.
