An education that prepares you for the future
The School of Engineering and Computer Science (SOECS) at University of the Pacific is one of California's leading engineering and computer science schools. Engineering and computer science programs are built around a foundation of experiential learning that empowers students to solve problems through innovation and outside-the-box thinking. Most students in SOECS participate in the distinguished cooperative education (CO-OP) program where they can gain industry experience through paid, professional internships that are built into the curriculum.
See the latest issue that showcases the work and success of our students, faculty and alumni.
Our distinguished cooperative education program gives students 'learn and earn' professional internships, built right into the curriculum, with one of our 200+ industry partners worldwide.
We offer a wide range of major and minor degrees, broad availability of student services, and a high success rate of our graduates finding post-graduate employment or education.
Research reinforces classroom knowledge and gives students the opportunity to apply what they have learned. A better understanding and deeper appreciation of the studied material is developed through research, whether in research partnerships with professors, hands-on research in the field, or the required capstone project.
