Seattle University has long been a leader in computer science and software engineering education. Our curriculum has been shaped by close contacts with local industry, ensuring that courses are relevant to the work place and that projects are tailored to the professional needs of our students.
Seattle University has been at the forefront of IT education for more than 40 years. We established our pioneering Master of Software Engineering program in 1979, and awarded the world's first MSE degree in 1982. As the Puget Sound region developed into one of the world's leading technology hubs, our faculty developed connections with industry leaders to ensure students remained competitive in the job market. Today, Computer Science is the fastest-growing program on our campus, and our graduate students are employed by most major tech brands.
Most MSCS graduates are employed within 6 months of graduation (2017-2020). Recent graduates are employed by Amazon, Microsoft, Google, F5 Networks, and other major tech firms in the region.
On average, professionals with an MSCS degree make 20% more in salary than their peers with only a computer science bachelor degree.
"This program is great at getting you where you want to be. The field is constantly changing, and the ability to jump in to something new and learn as you go is the most important quality you can have as a computer scientist."
