Best Computer Science Colleges in Pennsylvania for 2019

Rank School Name Location Description   Rating
1 Carnegie Mellon University Pittsburgh, PA

Carnegie Mellon will “bring out the best in you.” At least, that’s what their website states. But “mutual trust and support among all faculty, staff and students” might be just the right way to actually fulfill this statement. Especially outstanding is the department’s diversity - around 33 percent of students receiving an undergraduate degree in computer science are women, which is almost twice as much as the national average! No wonder Carnegie Mellon University's Carol Frieze is the recipient of the 2017 A. Nico Habermann Award, which recognizes her sustained and successful efforts to promote diversity in computer science. Post-graduation survey results from 2015 state that 85% of their graduates with a bachelor’s degree are now employed, while 10% are continuing their education.
