Computer Science Graduate Degree Programs

Masters Degree

The objectives of the masters of computer science program are to develop highly qualified professionals capable of adapting with ease to the dynamic field of computing and to prepare students interested in pursuing doctoral studies in computer science or related fields. This master program provides a strong foundation and students may choose an area of specialization.

Elective courses are offered in cutting-edge areas, such as:

  • data mining and machine learning
  • networks and network security
  • distributed, parallel and mobile computing
  • computer graphics and computer vision
  • artificial intelligence

In addition, a software management course is offered for interested students who wish to pursue leadership positions. The program ends with a capstone experience, which may be in the form of an independent project or a master's thesis.

Students in the masters of computer science program also have the opportunity to participate in the DeMatteis Co-op Program.  Co-op students are hired for a paid position in a company related to their degree program for a period of six to eight months prior to graduation. Working as a co-op gives students valuable hands-on experience and is a tremendous advantage for graduating students seeking full-time employment.

Our 30 s.h. masters program offers a truly unique and exciting learning experience for those who are interested in pursuing a highly successful career in the dynamic field of computing.
