Career Potential:

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of computer and information research scientists is projected to grow 16 percent from 2018 to 2028, much faster than the average for all occupations. The CS-NLP major also offers a strong foundation for careers in the fields producing some of the most valuable advancements of our time, including medicine, electronics, engineering, and communications. Potential career fields include:

  • Data science
  • User experience design (UX/UI)
  • AI architecture
  • Web design
  • App development
  • Applied research science
  • Project management

Benefits of the Program:

  • The Senior Research Project is a yearlong academic endeavor with a one-on-one interaction between a faculty member and graduating senior.
  • Every student majoring in computer science is required to complete a co-op with a relevant business or organization.
  • Our low student-to-faculty ratio promotes personalized attention and guidance.
