About

The Computer Science (PSM) program of Kutztown University prepare graduates to thrive in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing both high-rigor technical skills and the business fundamentals required to understand and navigate the technology workplace.

Overview

Instead of a thesis, graduate students of the Computer Science (PSM) program of Kutztown University participate in a collaborative research project and a professional internship with an employer in the business, government, or non-profit sectors. Your internship may be carried out under the auspices of a current employer.

KU’s PSM program is affiliated with and meets the standards of the Council of Graduate Schools, requiring both a graduate internship and courses in a non-C discipline that enhance the graduate's potential to rise to management positions earlier in their career.

Jobs for graduates of the program can be located in technology-specific industries or in the IT departments of industries of various types. These jobs include, but are not limited to, project managers, database administrators, network administrators, security managers, and directors of IT departments.
