Master of Science in Computer Science

The MS in Computer Science provides intensive preparation in the concepts and techniques related to the design, programming, and application of computing systems. Students are provided a deep understanding of both advanced and important current issues in computer science so that they may either obtain productive employment or pursue advanced research.

Focus Research Areas

The MS in Computer Science program requires the student to take a broad spectrum of courses, while simultaneously allowing for emphasis in desired areas of specialization close to software technologies, systems and networks, multimedia, visual computing, embedded systems, information security engineering, software engineering and information systems.

  1. Communication Systems and Networks

  2. Electrical Power and Energy Engineering

  3. Robotics and Control Systems

  4. Computer Networks and Cyber Security
