Published January 22, 2015

ULM’s computer science program recently earned re-accreditation from the Computing Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). The program has maintained accreditation through ABET since 1987.


“At a time when demand for computer science graduates is very high, it is great to have the quality of our program validated by an organization such as ABET,” said Dr. Jose Cordova, computer science program coordinator.

“Our computer science graduates continue to find great employment opportunities for internships and full-time positions. Several fall graduates earned starting salaries in excess of $75,000, while students seeking internships are accepting offers of $20 per hour.”

ULM’s computer science program prepares students for a variety of in-demand career opportunities, including computer programmers, computer analysts, database developers and administrators, and networking professionals.


“ULM is fortunate to have an outstanding computer science faculty who work closely with our students to ensure they are well prepared to enter the workforce. I offer my congratulations and sincere thanks to them for their dedication to our students and commitment to excellence as required by ABET accreditation,” said Dr. Ron Berry, dean of the College of Business and Social Sciences.
