The computer science program at Pacific University follows Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) guidelines and includes both object-oriented programming and procedural programming paradigms. Languages used throughout the four years of study include C++, C, Java, Python, and PHP. Students have access to state-of-the-art lab environments for serious software development and are exposed to a variety of industry standard software tools and practices. Internships with local companies such as Intel, McAfee, WebMD and HP provide real-world experience.
Careers in Computer Science
Pacific’s computer science students accept positions in a variety of professional settings, as well as enter graduate programs. Many students choose to extend their learning through internships at government research labs or technology companies. You will find our graduates working at leading companies like Google, Microsoft and WebMD, starting their own companies, developing mobile applications and consulting.
