Program Description

The Master of Science Program in Computer Science is designed to accommodate students with different goals and prepare students for a variety of positions in industry, business, and the public sector; for continued study at the doctoral level; or for academic careers at the two-year colleges. You will find opportunities here to enhance your professional development and contribute to your community. We encourage critical thinking and quantitative reasoning, and treat Computer Science as a scientific enterprise.

Special characteristics of our program:

  • Low student/faculty ratio.
  • Many classes in the evening or in the morning. Some are online.
  • Breadth and depth both emphasized: you get a solid foundation in Computer Science core, then you can choose a specialization area as networking and communications, databases, bio-informatics, or artificial intelligence. You should study the past Masters Projects and available Research Topics to see if your interest matches our expertise.
  • Faculty mentoring: from the moment you enter, you will have a faculty advisor. Changing your interests while choosing your special area? You can change to a new advisor.
