Duration18 Months
LevelMasters Program
  • The M.S. in Computer Science (MSCS) program is designed to provide advanced study opportunities for individuals who:
    • hold a bachelors degree in Computer Science and would like to advance their technical knowledge in the field and/or learn about research in Computer Science
    • hold a bachelors degree in another field and want to make a career transition to the computing field, or
    • currently, work in the computing field and wish to obtain a graduate degree for career advancement
  • Thesis and non-thesis options are available
  • The MSCS program provides an advanced level of computer science knowledge, building on the foundation provided by the Bachelor of Science degree
  • It also helps students with undergraduate degrees in closely related disciplines — such as in mathematics or engineering — transition to a deep understanding of computer science
  • MSCS students go on to solve computational problems in science and engineering fields, employing a deeper, broader perspective to such problems than students prepared at the Bachelor of Science level
