Master of Science
The master of science program in computer science offers students the opportunity to engage in course work, research projects, and other activities designed to develop theoretical background and up-to-date practical skills in the rapidly changing area of computer science. The program provides a broad spectrum of study in preparation for careers in advanced computer research areas. The program allows students flexibility in planning their program of study after the initial course requirements are met.
The program is open to computer science graduates and also to selected students whose preparation is outside computer science. However, students entering graduate study from outside the computer science area may be required to go through additional preparation before beginning their graduate program. Those students who have some deficiency in their undergraduate training but are well qualified in other aspects may be admitted provisionally. The department may prescribe a number of prerequisite courses to make up for the deficiency.
Courses (24 credit hours)
A minimum of eight courses (24 credit hours) is required: four core courses (12 credit hours), and four electives (12 credit hours).
