Life After Linfield

The job outlook for Linfield computer science graduates is bright. Students secure a job within three months after graduation.

There is no better time to earn a degree in computer science. Computer science was ranked the third most demanded degree by employers in 2012 (National Association of Colleges and Employers, 2011). You might be surprised to know that many computer science students also decide to major and minor in other disciplines, among them English, mathematics, business management, and religious studies. Their broad skillset gives them a competitive edge over other job candidates in the field.

Where do Linfield students work after graduation? Some of our graduates have worked as system administrators for, at the time, the world's fastest supercomputer at the renowned Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Others have gone on to become recognized software engineers, web developers, technical architects, systems analysts, database administrators, and quality assurance engineers in the field. Here are just some of the companies our alumni have worked with:

  • Apple, Inc.
  • Boeing
  • The Cobalt Group
  • Digimarc
  • Dotcast, Inc.
  • Fyntech
  • GGB Medical Management Services
  • Intel
  • ISITE Design
  • Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
  • Metis Systems and Consultants
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH)
  • Nike
  • Oregon Health & Science University
  • Philips
  • Sun Microsystems, Inc.

Alternatively, some students seek advanced degrees at graduate schools such as Stanford University and the University of Washington.

No matter where their career takes them, Linfield computer science graduates are well equipped to handle evolving trends in technology.
