The Fred DeMatteis School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS) is home to Hofstra's computer science and engineering departments. The DeMatteis School is distinguished by offering students hands-on research experience in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, valuable pre-professional, on-the-job experience, and collaborative relationships with professors who are leaders in their fields.
In addition to their coursework in engineering and computer science, students have the opportunity to spend a semester in our growing co-op program, working as a full-time salaried employee for a company in a field related to their major. This, along with a strong foundation in the liberal arts and sciences, prepares DeMatteis School well – 96 percent of undergraduate degree recipients reported that they were employed within six months of graduation (Class of 2014-15).
The mission of the DeMatteis School is to educate engineers and computer scientists that are creative, entrepreneurial and ready to tackle critical global challenges.Facilities
