Undergraduate Program

Career Opportunities

Many Computer Science majors are involved in the co-op program. They typically work for a semester and a summer with a large firm such as IBM, GE, or Microsoft assisting in their software development. This is a popular program because, in addition to earning money, it allows students to apply the knowledge that they have acquired in the classroom to "real world" problems.

A Rensselaer undergraduate education in computer science makes our students highly desirable for industrial employment after graduation. The average starting salary for the class of 2011 was over $74,000, and Computer Science is one of the most heavily recruited majors in the Institute.

Comprehensive career development services are provided by Rensselaer's Career Development Center.

Job postings for RPI CS majors are available from AfterCollege.
