Our team at Elevator3 Software has worked with many of Southeastern's Computer Science students over the years. The department's curriculum and professors do a phenomenal job preparing students to make impactful contributions to development teams right out of school. At present, our team has 7 SELU graduates working at our company, and we couldn't be happier. We love speaking to classes, providing internship opportunities, and giving presentations about current trends as often as possible. We'll certainly continue to work with the department for years to come! Elevator3 Software, Baton Rouge, La.

Envoc would like to thank the Southeastern Louisiana University Computer Science department and faculty for allowing Envoc to occasionally invade their classrooms, influence the curriculum, and challenge the students with real-world project assignments. Envoc has had the pleasure of interning and hiring almost a dozen Computer Science students and alumni. Constant learning is a requirement in our field and the Southeastern Graduates understand that, just like a doctor or lawyer, they are entering into a "practice" that requires continual training, refinement and innovation. Envoc is so impressed with the Southeastern Computer Science Department that it believes that many of the graduates will know more about Software Development when they graduate, than the people that will be interviewing them -- the curriculum is THAT good.
A Deloitte Software Development and Hiring Manager speaking about Computer Science student presentations: "I was impressed by the effort the students went through to deliver projects and the amount of work I know went into it. I was much more impressed by the soft skills I observed. I have observed over time that, in general, computer science students do not communicate very well but most of the [Southeastern] students were so comfortable speaking in front of the audience. I do expect to see the growth in the students from the time they take the CMPS 285 class to the time they take CMPS 411 but even the 285 students presented really well. The effort that the faculty give toward development of the students is really showing. Keep up the good/hard work and it will continue to pay benefits for all those that receive."
