Learn how to create the hardware and software of tomorrow.
For undergraduates we offer a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering that focuses on programming and building computer systems. For those looking to code and design for the Web, we also offer a B.S. in Web Design and Engineering that pairs a technical education in computing with courses in graphic arts, communication, and sociology.
By your senior year, you'll take on a major project that identifies a need, and then creates a product to address it. Past projects include apps to improve health care in rural areas, virtual reality software for treating anxiety, and nanosatellite software.
Our graduate programs include an M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering. The capstone and dissertation work of our grad students often leads to developing solutions that reach far beyond the Santa Clara campus.
Our faculty members have worked for companies like Google and LG, helped write state K-12 curriculum, and collaborated with organizations like the National Science Foundation and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. During your time here, you'll have the chance to work in their labs or with them through the Sustainable Energy Initiative or Frugal Innovation Lab.
