Computing Sciences and Computer Engineering


A Message From the Director

Sarah Lee

In our increasingly digital economy, the ability to solve problems and synthesize data into information are skillsets useful in most vocations. Computing education helps develop these skills.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 12% growth in computing occupations from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all other occupations. The School of Computing Sciences and Computer Engineering is committed to broadening participation in computing and developing the technical leaders of tomorrow.

We offer multiple computing majors including computer science, computer engineering, and information technology, and bachelors, masters, and doctoral degree programs.

The skillsets of our graduates have led them to employment pathways with companies such as:

  • Apple
  • Nissan
  • NASA
  • Raytheon
  • Howard Industries
  • Cisco
  • Lockheed Martin

Our faculty work with undergraduate and graduate students to develop the next generation of innovative researchers, and many graduates are furthering their education at USM or other institutions across the country.

Whether you are a prospective student, a parent, an alum, or you represent a company, non-profit, or government entity, I invite you to help us make a difference in the growth of an innovative and computationally skilled workforce.

Southern Miss to the Top!
