About the Department

Featuring world-class facilities, a groundbreaking curriculum and renowned faculty members, the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Department of Computer Science & Engineering is one of the country’s top computer science and engineering programs — including top five in software engineering.

By teaching essential skills and providing unmatched research and training opportunities, we prepare students for the most challenging, innovative, and fastest-growing careers of the 21st Century.

We invest about $5 million each year to conduct state-of-the-art research in software engineering, informatics and systems. Not only is 100 percent of our tenured and tenure-track faculty engaged in active research programs, but so are our graduate and undergraduate students.

Our Design Studio provides undergraduate students an exclusive opportunity to experience real-world system development by creating innovative software and software/hardware solutions to address practical problems. The Jeffrey S. Raikes School of Computer Science and Management produces top-quality graduates who combine business knowledge and computing fundamentals for enterprise information and software systems.

With face-to-face advising, and a vibrant, freshly renovated Student Resource Center that offers mentoring and homework help 50 hours per week, we make a future in computing accessible to those seeking great challenge and driven by curiosity.

Our chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery sponsors features presentations by industry representatives, conducts programming contests, organizes social events and elects representatives to active roles in the department. Top students are invited to join the Upsilon Pi Epsilon Honor Society, and all students are encouraged to get involved in the new Game Developers Club, exposing them to the latest in video gaming, including development competitions.

Our students get well-paying jobs. Over the last four years, 100 percent of students seeking jobs, found jobs. And 80 percent had job offers in hand before they started their senior year.

Our students are recruited by industry leading companies, including IBM, Microsoft, Google, Garmin, and Union Pacific, and local companies such as Design Data, GC Image, GIS Workshop, Information Analytics, and Hudl. Their average starting salaries are around $60,000, with potential to earn much more.

The experience, friendships, and memories they gain at Nebraska are invaluable.
