About the Computer Science Major
Carroll University’s computer science major prepares you for a career that Money Magazine calls the best job in America. At Carroll, you’ll have access to the latest software tools and digital technologies, commonly-used database management systems, industry standard programming language platforms, as well as campus-wide Wi-Fi networks. There is equipment exclusively available for use by computer science and information technology majors.
Students majoring in computer science are required to complete an internship. Through the internship course, students acquire experiences in resume writing, job interviews, and software development in the real world. Internships are typically paid. It is not unusual that students continue on to become employees at the companies where they interned.
You’ll learn problem-solving skills that can be applied to solving a variety of real-world problems, whether they be business-oriented, scientific, web-based or recreational. You’ll learn to use multiple programming paradigms, enterprise resources, different software development frameworks, sound software design techniques and software engineering practices. Students majoring in computer science are encouraged to add a minor or pursue a second major in mathematics or in a science field to strengthen their career potential.
Carroll University has received a grant from the National Science Foundation which provides scholarships up to $5,000 for students majoring in computer science and other select majors as part of the Pro-STEM Initiative. These scholarships are awarded in addition to other institutional scholarships offered by the university.
