M.S. Computer Science
The M.S. in Computer Science prepares you to design, develop and implement computing systems and software for all domains of our daily lives, such as finance, pharmaceutical, technology and management fields. The program also provides effective preparation for Ph.D. studies.
- Demonstrate knowledge and skills in the design of algorithm and programs.
- Understand operating system fundamentals.
- Understand networking and its application.
- Understand database systems and develop database applications.
- Work on real-life projects in groups.
- Communicate the outcomes of a project in both written and oral forms.
- Select a specialization and take three advanced courses in their specialization to further their knowledge.
- Apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline.
- Analyze a problem and identify and define the computing requirements appropriate to its solution.
- Design, implement and evaluate a computer-based system, process, component or program to meet desired needs.
- Function effectively on teams to accomplish a common goal.
- Communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- Recognize the need for and an ability to engage in continuing professional development.
- Use current techniques, skills and tools necessary for computing practice.
- Apply mathematical foundations, algorithmic principles and Computer Science theory in the modeling and design of computer-based systems in a way that demonstrates comprehension of the tradeoffs involved in design choices.
- Apply design and development principles in the construction of software systems of varying complexity.
- Understand state of the art research and apply research methods to solving new problems.
