This program provides advanced professional training in computer science and gives students a diversity of experience and subject matter through its distribution, elective, and project requirements. Its broad scope recognizes the continuing development of computing disciplines and applications, and allows students to prepare for these areas. The program enables students to enter, or advance in, the computing profession or an allied field, along a variety of career paths. It can also prepare students for further graduate study.
This program exists in two versions. The main degree program, consisting of 30 credit hours (10 courses) is for students who have earned a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from an ABET accredited university. We also accommodate students with weaker CS backgrounds, or no prior CS background, by prescribing up to six additional courses in fundamental CS subjects. All applicants are expected to demonstrate that they have completed a baccalaureate degree and a course in college algebra prior to enrolling.
International applicants are urged to submit scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) to be considered for admission. GRE scores are required for international applicants who wish to be considered for scholarships. The GRE is optional for graduates of regionally accredited United States colleges and universities.
