Highly qualified candidates from other areas may also be considered. Candidates with industry experience are encouraged to apply.

Cal Poly emphasizes Learn by Doing, which involves extensive lab work and projects in support of theoretical knowledge. The CSSE department has recently established several unique programs, such as an ABET-accredited undergraduate major in Software Engineering, a Cybersecurity initiative, and Cross-disciplinary Studies Minors in Computing for the Interactive Arts and Data Science in collaboration with the Arts and Statistics departments, respectively. The successful candidates will have an opportunity to play a pivotal role in supporting and enhancing these strategic initiatives.

Cal Poly's Computer Science and Software Engineering Department offers Bachelor's Degrees in Computer Science and Software Engineering, and Master's Degrees in Computer Science. Also, the Computer Science and the Electrical Engineering departments jointly offer a B.S. degree in Computer Engineering. U.S. News & World Report ranks the Computer Science Department among the top primarily undergraduate public programs in the nation.
