Career Paths after Graduation
Career paths for a DAS student include (but not limited to):
- Software Engineering
- User Experience and User Interaction Design
- Video Game Development

- Mobile App Development
- Research in related fields
Students have been offered positions in these fields from companies such as Microsoft, Electronic Arts (EA), Ford Motors, Mobiquity, Grooveshark, Disney, Pixar, Mindtree, and Harris, among others.
CISE holds a Career Development Workshop (CDW) every semester, where top industry representatives from companies across the country come to interact with students interested in fields related to Computer Science and Computer Engineering. CDW provides students the opportunity to interview for internships, co-ops, and full-time positions. Students may also get advice from industries about what skills to perfect, and develop important networking skills.
UF also holds the Career Showcase every semester, a larger scale version of the Career Development Workshop for all UF students and alumni. If a company is not at CDW, then chances are they will be at Career Showcase.
In addition, Gainesville has a growing startup scene and local companies are always looking for fresh talent.
Internships help solidify a student's knowledge of programming, problem solving, team work, and help prepare students for the work environment. Although not required, they are encouraged.
The Career Connections Center provides assistance with resume building, mock interviews and other career planning services.
