Computer scientists enjoy some of the highest salaries and best job prospects in the country. Going to school in a major technological hub gives you an extra edge: Many of our graduates go on to jobs in software development and engineering. Companies like Amazon, Google, and Yahoo have offices in nearby Kendall Square, Cambridge.
Suffolk’s computer science program is exceptionally hands-on. From the start, you’ll get substantial experience with machine-level programming and direct exposure to computer architecture, networks, and programming for a thorough understanding of hardware and software systems.
Uniquely, our upper-level classes are taught during the late afternoon or evening. This allows you to work during the day to gain actual experience in the field. Many students also tutor on-campus at our Math/Computer Science center.
Computers continue to have an exciting and evolving influence on how we understand the world and how we communicate with one another. To this end, many Suffolk students go on to careers beyond software development. Engineering, advertising, television and film production, and video-game design are all popular choices that require computational expertise. Many students combine the major with courses in Math, Engineering, Art, and Design.
