Portland State University is Oregon’s most innovative, diverse, and affordable public research university, located in one of the nation’s most desirable places to live, and the Maseeh College of Engineering and Computer Science is your testing ground for putting new ideas into action. We believe in involving everyone—from freshmen to faculty—in solving the problems facing our region and our world. Maseeh College is the hub of PSU’s mission to “let knowledge serve.”
Maseeh includes five departments, 95 full-time faculty and more than 2,700 students, and we offer academic programs that provide transformative opportunities within the classroom and beyond. We are proud that nontraditional students are an integral part of our tradition, welcoming more transfer students and career changers than any other college in Oregon. Maseeh College is also a champion for access to engineering and computer science education: almost half of our student body is non-white, and 45% of them are the first generation to attend college.
When you join our college, you'll be at the heart of a diverse and inclusive environment, connected to Portland’s “silicon forest,” a nexus of growing, innovative industries and agencies, and you will be prepared to gain competitive jobs in engineering and computer science. Our student groups, campus opportunities, and internship programs give you the opportunity to build your professional skills while you complete your degree.
You can participate in research, community-based learning projects, and other opportunities to enhance your education experience. Our students are in demand in the Portland job market and beyond, and they report the highest annual earnings of all PSU graduates one year after graduation. A thriving network of over 15,000 alumni is changing the world in 44 countries and all 50 states.
