Hear How Our Program Helped One Graduate Reach Her Career Goals

Seattle University's Department of Computer Science & Software Engineering is dedicated to helping our students succeed, both in the classroom and out of it. When you watch this video, you'll hear the story of Iliana, who earned her graduate degree in software engineering.

Iliana explains that although she looked at many major universities, she chose Seattle University because our software engineering master's programs cover topics that other universities fail to cover. Plus, the professors in our computer science and software engineering department have worked within the industry, and can present real-life problems and solutions to students. Iliana also discusses the Capstone Project, which put her new knowledge and skills to the test.

Why Women Should Consider a Career in Computer Science

Graduate programs in computer science have long been dominated by men. Experts in this area suggest that the industry is well overdue for an influx of female workers, noting that they could bring a new insight to the field and meet the rising demand for more computer scientists with graduate degrees. If you're dissatisfied with your current career or you're wondering what you should do with your undergraduate degree, you might consider looking for universities in Seattle that offer computer science graduate programs.

Growing Industry

In today's struggling economy, job security often seems like an urban legend. One way to expand your career prospects is to choose a field that is projected to have an increasing demand for workers. According to San Jose Mercury News , about 1.4 million U.S. computing jobs will become available between 2010 and 2020, and only about 400,000 computer scientists will have earned graduate degrees during that time. This means that there is expected to be one million available jobs in the computer science field, which represents about $500 billion in wages. It only makes sense to fill that gap with female computer scientists from the U.S. Otherwise, employers may have to look abroad to meet the rising demand.

Lucrative Opportunities

Jobs in the ever-growing tech industry tend to pay substantially more than jobs that have traditionally been pursued by women, such as teaching. By pursuing a job in computer science after obtaining your graduate degree, you have the opportunity to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle, comprehensive benefits package, stock options package, and much more.

Seattle University's Department of Computer Science & Software Engineering invites women and men to explore our graduate programs on our website. Or, call (866) 926-3027 with any questions you may have about our academics. At Seattle University, you'll gain real-world experience in the computer science industry with our Senior Capstone Project, enabling you to develop valuable industry contacts and work toward a promising future.

Should You Consider a Career Change?

Far too many people accept jobs that do not appeal to them simply because the salary and benefits package are lucrative. Likewise, many individuals accept what they believe to be their dream jobs, yet later discover that they feel disconnected from work they no longer enjoy. If you've been thinking about changing careers, it could be time to explore graduate programs in Seattle. With a graduate degree in a field such as computer science or software engineering, you can put your skills to work for projects you believe in.

Your Work Responsibilities Do Not Appeal to You

It's a common misconception that if a person is highly adept in one particular area, he or she should stick to it and avoid trying new things. However, even if you excel at helping other employees at your company figure out their new software systems, you may not necessarily enjoy it. In these cases, it's often best to trust your intuition and consider transitioning to a career with work responsibilities you feel passionate about. When you enroll in a graduate program, you'll be able to explore your interests and fine-tune your career objectives.

Your Salary Cannot Compensate for the Drawbacks

Many people are hesitant to leave their current jobs and try something new because they fear losing their paycheck or having to get by with a much smaller paycheck. But at a certain point, you may begin to realize that sacrificing most of your waking hours for a job you no longer care for simply isn't worth it. Plus, after earning your graduate degree, you can indeed pursue other opportunities that offer lucrative salaries.

You're Experiencing Physical and Psychological Symptoms

The chronic stress of holding down a job you dislike can readily lead to physical symptoms and psychological challenges. It may be time to consider a career change if you always feel fatigued, become ill frequently, feel depressed and jaded, or experience various aches and pains.

Do you believe your skills and knowledge could be put to better use? Get started on your path to your dream career by enrolling in Seattle University's Department of Computer Science & Software Engineering. Call Seattle University at (866) 926-3027 and ask us about our graduate programs in software engineering and computer science.
