Master of Science Degrees
Master of Science in Computer Science
The Master of Science in computer science (MSCS) degree program prepares graduate students for career-oriented jobs, or for gaining admission into PhD programs around the world. Its curriculum is designed to ensure that students can study traditional areas of computer science as well as modern research trends in courses taught by active researchers having national and international recognition.
Master of Science in Computing
The Master of Science in computing (MSCP) degree provides students from a computing or noncomputing background a top-quality graduate education in computing fundamentals and specializations in concentration areas such as computer networking (CN), cybersecurity (CS), data science (DS) and software engineering (SE). It provides conventional as well as stackable-credential pathways toward completing the degree program. Students have the opportunity to formulate their degree plans into units of graduate certificates in designated concentration areas. The MSCP degree program prepares graduate students for career-oriented jobs in the rapidly growing computing-requiring industry.
Master of Science in Data Science
The Master of Science in data science (MSDS) program emphasizes development of the next generation of data scientists and engineers. Students graduating from the program master the skills to build the infrastructure for delivering insights from raw data sources, as well as implement data science pipelines and workflows for acquiring, cleaning, transforming, analyzing and visualizing data to provide descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics. The program includes a curriculum to develop sought-after skills in various aspects of data science and engineering to prepare a skilled workforce in the area of data science.
