Our Computer Science undergraduate alumni go on to great opportunities. Many are recruited by global giants like Amazon, Apple and Facebook, as well as smaller companies ranging from Airbnb to Zillow. Many of our graduates go on to create startups like ExtraHop, LendUp and SnapStream, while some use their talents to support non-profit endeavors like FromThePage, GroupRaise and MDSave. Rice CS alumni who discovered a passion for research and teaching push the frontiers of science at leading universities. Where will you go with your CS degree?

Get Involved

Collaboration happens both inside and outside the classrooms in the Department of Computer Science. To foster this lively community, the department and undergraduate organizations organize tech talks, lunch-and-learns, and other activities. Students continually offer each other support within their project teams, college study groups, and the department-sponsored clubs. Just as important as academic support is the social aspect of the clubs. Taking a study break or working on a side project helps keep students grounded.

Undergraduate Resources  

Our department offers an array of in-person and informational resources for undergraduate students as they plan their coursework and declare their majors.
