  1. Facts about Computer Science

    Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) is designed to provide students with the theoretical and practical application skills required: 1) to master a good understanding of the Computer Science discipline; 2) to be able to contribute immediately and make a positive impact in the workplace.

    Below are some useful facts about the program for Graduate Students to consider:

    • Math 170, COMP 281, Comp 111, Comp 121, Comp 311, Comp 203, and Comp 204, or the equivalent from an accredited school, are prerequisite requirements.

    • Classes can be taken out of order, so long as prerequisite requirements are being met.

    • The program can be completed in as few as 20 months, however students are permitted five years from their first course to complete the program.

    • There are a total of ten courses required to complete programming.
