Computer Labs

We have two computer labs accessible 24/7 during the school year. These labs feature dozens of docking stations, 27-inch monitors, a color network scanner that supports duplexing, printers, projectors, and lounge areas for a break. Our labs are available for freshman-senior students and provide a great environment for working either as a team or individually. The labs are also conveniently located near our faculty offices.

Usability Lab

In the Usability Lab, an actual user operates your system while you follow his or her experience through a detailed monitoring system close by. You can also communicate with the user directly at the same time. This lab offers a great way to perfect your work based on actual user feedback.

Majors & Minors

We offer majors, minors, and a double major in Computer Science and Software Engineering. You can also major in International Computer Science, involving a year in Germany.

Bachelor of Science in International Computer Science (Dual Degree)

As an undergraduate, you can earn two bachelor of science degrees in International Computer Science. One degree will be from the Ulm University of Applied Sciences, Germany, the other from Rose-Hulman.

You’ll spend your first two years on the Rose-Hulman campus. For your third year, you’ll be in Ulm, Germany, meeting your international peers and taking classes together (in English). For your fourth year, both you and students from Ulm will be studying together on the Rose-Hulman campus.

Software Developer

Software Developers are the creative minds behind computer programs. Some develop the applications that allow people to do specific tasks on a computer or another device. Others develop the underlying systems that run the devices or control networks. Many software developers work for firms that deal in computer systems design and related services, or for software publishers. Software developers usually have a bachelor’s degree in computer science and strong computer programming skills. The median annual wage for software developers was $100,690 in May 2015. – U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Computer Network Architects

Computer network architects design and build data communication networks, including local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), and intranets. These networks range from small connections between two offices to next-generation networking capabilities such as a cloud infrastructure that serves multiple customers. Employment of computer network architects is projected to grow 9 percent from 2014 to 2024, faster than the average for all occupations. The median annual wage for computer network architects was $100,240 in May 2015. – U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
