School of Engineering and Computer Science

Pacific's School of Engineering and Computer Science is a student-oriented experience with the purpose of building a community by visionary action, creative problem solving, and grit. At Pacific SOECS, we empower our students to solve problems through innovative and outside the box thinking. They have the opportunity to develop their own projects as well as work alongside professors on cutting-edge research. Our faculty take each student's education personally and are committed to mentoring them both inside and outside of the classroom. With our distinguished cooperative education (CO-OP) program, our students also get to 'learn and earn' through a paid professional internship, built right into the curriculum, with one of our 200+ industry partners worldwide.
