Why Edinboro Stands Out.

If you have what it takes to succeed in the fast-paced world of computer science but you're not yet sure of exactly what path to follow, the Software Development track might be ideal for you.

It allows you to plan for flexibility in your computer science career.

Start with a solid foundation in both math and computer science. You'll gain an in-depth knowledge of programming and computer architecture, just like all Computer Science majors. From there you can choose electives and an internship that are best suited to your career interests.

By the time you graduate you'll be prepared for graduate school or work in a variety of settings.

How Edinboro Supports You.

As a student, you'll learn and grow as you spend time interning at a prestigious national lab or a successful business closer to home.

Many students fulfill their internship requirements in Erie, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Buffalo, and often accept jobs in those cities after graduation. Other graduates venture out into every corner of the world.

They're sharing their expertise and contributing to the success of companies big and small, including:

  • Applied Systems Associates
  • Duke University Press
  • Indeed
  • Larson Texts
  • Logistics Plus
  • Microsoft
  • MRI Software
  • Penn-Union Corporation
  • Uber ATG
  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

I owe a great deal of my success to my time at Edinboro, both as an undergraduate and graduate student. The opportunities offered to me in the way of internships and relationships with great Computer Science faculty helped to shape the trajectory of my career
