Computer Science Opportunities

​What can you do with a computer science degree?

When it comes to the future, there are few guarantees. But you're not likely to find a field with a more optimistic outlook than computer science. While some of our students go on to graduate school, most take jobs in industry as software developers. Some of the companies they go to provide computer hardware or software products and services (e.g., Amazon, Google, Facebook, Netflix, Intuit, and Apple), while others sell products and services unrelated to software, but have internal software needs (e.g., Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Disney and financial services companies).
