Applications are now open for students to apply to earn bachelor’s degrees in cyber operations engineering; data science; and software engineering.

“Our goal is to bring more value to our academic portfolio so that potential students think of Bowie State as a university that provides high-quality computer science, technology, and engineering degree programs along with its established reputation in liberal arts education,” said Carl Goodman, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Bowie State University. “We’re committed to ensuring our students are prepared for the new jobs that are becoming available daily in the fast-growing STEM sectors of our economy.”
