Study math, computer science or physics here for three years and then study engineering for two years at Columbia University, earning a bachelor's degree from Susquehanna and an engineering degree from Columbia.
Help drive innovation
Master the technologies that are taking us into the future—like cloud-based operating systems, artificial intelligence, and cryptology and code-breaking.
With a degree in computer science, you'll know networking, security, graphics, hardware architecture, and much more. You'll become proficient in several programming languages, including Java and Python, and develop computer applications that real people use.
In Software Engineering—a class you won't find at other small colleges—your professor gives you performance evaluations, rather than exams. That's how it's done in the real world.
Interested in engineering? Study here for three years and get your bachelor's degree in computer science, and then get an engineering degree from Columbia University, Washington University of St. Louis or Case Western Reserve University through our joint engineering program.
Step into high-tech society
Do cutting-edge research or secure a summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU). Students have interned at Microsoft, Geisinger Health System and Lockheed Martin and landed jobs with government agencies and contractors, at major companies and in higher education.
You'll be armed with the right knowledge and skills to succeed and make a meaningful difference in computer science, software engineering, cryptology, networking, cyber security, database/systems administration and more.
