Computer science is a dynamic field that allows you to combine creativity with skills in communication, mathematics, and logic. This degree will provide you with the skills to quickly adjust to the rapidly changing computer culture over the course of your career. During the course of your studies, much of your learning will occur while actively working on problems in class, during tutorials, and in the laboratory. Seattle and the Puget Sound areas are a prominent national and international technology hub, with major computer corporations such as Microsoft and Amazon based in this area. After completion of this pathway, most CS students transfer at the junior level to one of the nearby University Washington campuses in Seattle, Tacoma, and Bothell. This enables students to then pursue careers in computing in local area technology companies.
