UMass Lowell's Computer Science programmes are top-notch and do a great job preparing students for the workforce. However, be warned that three UML programmes have the potential to be classified as "Computer Science."

The Kennedy College of Science offers a Computer Science programme with a more traditional and academic focus. The Francis College of Engineering offers a Computer Engineering programme with a mixed focus between software and electronic engineering. The Kennedy College of Science also offers a Computer Technology programme (a more flexible collection of programmes encompassing network engineering, pure software engineering etc.).

The programme struck a nice mix between theory and real-world application, and my education allowed me to enter the workforce quickly.

It's a tonne of work, and keeping up with the learning pace can feel like trying to drink from a firehose, like any CS-related programme. However, all programmes are carefully thought out and taught by academics who seem interested in their students' success.

You graduate from the programme with a very strong, useful education for less than you would pay to attend a public school. News outlets, including Forbes, US News and World Report, and Business Insider, routinely rank UML as an "underrated" university whose alumni' median mid-career earnings exceed those of colleges with comparable rankings. I would advise you to apply to any of UML's CS or engineering-related programmes.
