The Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science Transforms Lives

US News & World Report ranks PSU as #26 for social mobility amongst US universities, and #1 in the Pacific Northwest (https://www.usnews.com/best-colleges/portland-state-3216).  Social mobility measures the number of graduates whose economic status is significantly higher after graduation than before.  The Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science is a strong contributor to social mobility.  The average salaries of Computer Science and Engineering Bachelor’s degree graduates one year after graduation are the highest in the university according to the Department of Education data in the College Scorecard (https://collegescorecard.ed.gov/) which reports student earnings one year after graduation. The median salary of our computer science graduates one-year beyond graduation is amongst the highest of public universities in the US.
