Career Opportunities

Perhaps one of the best indications of the strength of the faculty and curriculum is the success of Utica College's graduates. Alumni have gone on to employment in knowledge engineering, virtual reality, aerospace, NASA, computer security, business, and many other related fields.


There are many opportunities for paid work experiences related to the computer science field. They include part time positions during the semester with full-time work in the summer. Among the organizations actively recruiting our students for co-op positions are IBM, New York Power Authority, Air Force Research Lab, and PAR Technologies. There are also many relevant and interesting work experiences available on campus.
