Are you a high school student thinking about Computing as a major and a career? Are you employed full time and considering a career change? If so, there are many good reasons for considering the Computing major at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.  We offer two distinct emphases with the major: the Computer Science emphasis and the Software Engineering emphasis.   The Computer Science emphasis is one of the select few ABET-accredited Computer Science programs in the state of Wisconsin.   Learn why ABET accreditation makes a difference.

The department has recently completed a project under a National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates grant. This allowed us to host and provide stipends to eight students for each of three summers. They worked on a variety of research projects that explored the common theme of open source software development in online computer science learning environments.

You can read more about the project.

Brian Paul: "So, you want to work for VMware? - how to have a
successful interview with a tech company".

Join us: 5:30pm - 6:30pm - Wednesday November 5 - Alumni Welcome and Conference Center - Room 201

Interviewing for a tech job can be intimidating and mysterious.  What is the employer looking for?  What should I say or not say?  What programming skills do I need? Brian has interviewed dozens of candidates for positions at VMware ranging from summer interns to managers.  He’ll give an employer’s perspective on interviewing and give advice to help maximize your chance for success.
