Unleash Your Potential
Uncover insider strategies and emerge as a true tech maverick.
Major in computer science and choose to focus your studies on software engineering or cybersecurity. With experience-based learning, you'll learn theoretical concepts and put them into practical application in the same class. Though our major is popular, we keep class sizes small, so students get individual time with professors. And, once you graduate, you’ll be in demand for a variety of high-paying careers in the dynamic world of computer science.
Future proof your career.
New technology and an increased need for computer software means both the field of computer science and the professionals within it are always adapting to change. In order to succeed in the field, you don’t just need the ability to learn programming languages; you also need to be able to evolve and think beyond writing software. Through our program, you’ll future proof your career by gaining the ability to define a problem, evaluate potential solutions and anticipate emerging technologies, such as the integration of artificial intelligence in software development.
