Graduate Program

The objective of the program leading to the Master of Science in Computer Science is designed to foster independent study and research. Graduates of the program may aspire to pursue a doctoral degree , teach computer science, or pursue careers in business, industy, and government.

The graduate program allows students to focus on detailed research and to refine software development and database management skills. We offer five areas of emphasis:

  • Operating Systems and Architecture
  • Computational Science
  • Programming Languages / Software Engineering
  • Digital Data Communications
  • Data Analytic and Data Mining

Students engaged in the concentration of Computational Science will have the opportunity to earn an MS degree in Computer Science and/or Ph.D. in Environmental Toxicology.

In addition to fulfilling the department's educational mission, faculty engage in research and professional development that allows them to remain current in their fields and to provide technological leadership to the university, community and the region. The department makes a conscious effort to evaluate and incorporate new areas and technologies into its programs.
