Career Opportunities

The Program

In a society increasingly reliant on information technology, the demand has grown for professionals that understand the science of computing and its application to other fields in business and industry, applying the fundamentals and practical uses of computer science to real-world problems. Forecast data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that over the decade 2020-2030 strong employment growth for computer and mathematical occupations is expected due to long-term economic changes driving up demand for workers in these occupations. Nationally, the median pay in 2020 for computer-related job titles ranged from $89,190 for computer programmers to $110,140 for software developers and software quality assurance analysts and testers. The applied computing program combines the core of the baccalaureate program in computer information systems or computer and information science with strong academic preparation in another area of study. Students take problem-solving skills and combine them with studies in both computer science and business, communication or another discipline of their choice. The result—career success in a variety of fields where computer skills are intertwined with knowledge of a second subject matter area.

Graduates with degrees in applied computing find themselves ready for employment in such areas as engineering, multimedia development, business, programming and analysis, system and network administration, medicine, and the arts. Computer science is one of the fastest growing fields in the U.S. today, and a degree in applied computing will help tomorrow’s graduates turn their entrepreneurial dreams into reality.

Labs SUNY Poly’s labs are interconnected on a modern highspeed network and supported by multiple file servers for central data storage that are accessible both on and off campus. A range of networking equipment, Windows and UNIX machines, and other programming environments provide students with hands-on, practical learning.

Faculty SUNY Poly faculty work closely with students and challenge them to excel. Many members of the faculty have experience in business and industry as well as academic credentials. A low student-to-faculty ratio means faculty really get to know and work closely with students.

What You’ll Study Select one of two tracks: Track A: Computer and Information Science Computing Fundamentals Computer Organization Data Structures & Algorithms Object-Oriented Programming Operating Systems & Networking Information & Knowledge Management Software Engineering Track B: Computer Information Systems Computing Fundamentals Data Structures & Algorithms Hardware and Network Infrastructure Systems Analysis & Design Database Management Systems Decision Support and Intelligent Systems Access the SUNY Poly catalog at https://webapp.sunypoly.edu/ undergrad-catalog/ for specific courses and program requirements.

“SUNY Poly…encouraging academic and intellectual achievements in a challenging, culturally diverse and supportive educational environment.”

SUNY Poly’s Utica Campus Located on hundreds of wooded and landscaped acres, SUNY Poly’s Utica campus is a beautiful living and learning environment. First-year students live in our modern, spacious residential complexes, including the new Hilltop Hall, SUNY’s first zero-net, carbon-certified residence hall, and enjoy an expanding array of student-focused facilities that include our state-of-the-art Center for Global Advanced Manufacturing, student center, and field house. Life on campus is enriched by a wide variety of events and activities, including the Wildcats’ championship-winning intercollegiate athletics program, our Wildcat Esports team, and a weekly agenda of intramurals, concerts, comedians, and more. Students can join one of the dozens of clubs and organizations or start one with a group of friends who share an interest.
