Median Salary

Be On The Cutting Edge Of New Technology.

CareerCast.com says Software Engineer is the #8 best job in the country, with a median salary over $90,000. Your Edinboro degree can get you there.

Why Edinboro Stands Out.

The curriculum in our computer science track is rigorous, but for good reason. It's designed around national curriculum models, employment opportunities and admissions requirements for graduate schools.

You'll find math at the heart of this program, with required courses in Analytic Geometry/Calculus, Applied Statistics/Data Analysis and others that build problem-solving skills. A combined Mathematics and Computer Science Department benefits you because you'll have easy access to planning, scheduling and advising from one central office.

Edinboro was key to me getting my internship at Argonne National Laboratory, which in turn got me another internship at Idaho National Laboratory, which in turn got me my first full-time job. With that strong start, I was able to move from eBay to Zapier to my current position with Visa. I currently lead solutions architecture across the 18 countries of the Asia-Pacific region. Every day is a new adventure as I travel around the region and work with interesting people from many different cultures.

Accreditation Matters

The Edinboro Computer Science track is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET), the trusted standard for the computing, engineering and engineering industries. When you graduate from Edinboro's ABET-accredited program, your degree will have added value. Employers will recognize you as a well-prepared professional, ready to lead the way in innovation and emerging technologies. Among other things, ABET accreditation:

  • Supports your entry into the profession through licensure, registration and certification.
  • Verifies that your education meets the global standard for technical excellence.
  • Paves the way for you to work globally.
  • Enhances your employment opportunities.
