Where Are Our Graduates?
Most CS majors complete internships or research projects before graduation, working closely with industry and faculty to do so. Recently, students have landed internship opportunities with the FBI, NSA, General Dynamics, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, SPAWAR, just to name a few. Recent research projects have involved social media data mining, network communication and security, and applications of blockchain technology. Students present their innovative projects at regional and national conferences. Over the last several years, Citadel computer science majors have completed dozens of presentations, won several presentation awards, and published several papers and abstracts.
Combined with their degrees, these experiences have propelled our graduates into exciting careers. A significant portion of our graduates commission in the Armed Forces (all branches), including positions in Cybersecurity. Most of our graduates enter the workforce as software engineers, security analysts, and developers for firms such as Booz Allen Hamilton, Phishlabs, SAIC, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, Boomtown ROI, Duke Energy, and ICES.
Computing is at the heart of every industry, and our graduates are using their Citadel Experiences to make a real difference.
