Program Description

The computer and information science master of science program is structured to facilitate mastery of computer science. Students take required courses to build a foundation of knowledge and have significant flexibility in tailoring the courses they take to their interests.

This department has significant offerings in data science, high-performance computing, and distributed systems (i.e., networking). Students have the option of doing an MS thesis, and this option reduces the required number of elective classes.

Program Prerequisites

Strong background in the sciences, preferably in computer science. Students with no computer science background whatsoever should pursue a post baccalaureate degree before applying.

Program Description

The computer and information science PhD program is structured to facilitate the process of learning how to do research. Students begin by taking the required courses to build a foundation of knowledge that is essential for advanced research.

Early in the program, the student gains research experience by undertaking a directed research project under the close supervision of a faculty member and the scrutiny of a faculty committee.

In the later stages of the program, students take fewer courses and spend most of their time exploring their dissertation area to learn how to identify and solve open problems.

The final steps are to propose an independent research project, do the research, and write and defend a dissertation.

Program Prerequisites

Strong background in the sciences, preferably in computer science.
