About the Programme
The degree program is designed to be flexible and fast — you can earn your Master’s with 100% online courses in as little as 12 months, while applying your learning immediately to your job.
The Online MCS program requires 32 credit hours of graduate coursework, completed through eight graduate-level courses. The MCS requires that four of these eight courses are chosen from four different core areas of computer science, and that three of these eight courses are at the advanced graduate level (500-level). The Online MCS currently offers coursework in the core areas of artificial intelligence, databases, interactive computing, software engineering, scientific computing, and high-performance computing.
Who can Apply?
This degree is for computing professionals who want to build skills in advanced topics in computer science, such as artificial intelligence, database & information systems, parallel computing, graphics, systems & networking, scientific computing, and more. This degree will accelerate your career and help you move into leading a team of engineers.
Applicants for the degree program must have:
- An eligible bachelor’s degree
- 3.0 or higher undergraduate GPA (from the last two years of bachelor’s degree coursework)
- A strong background in object-oriented computer programming, data structures, and algorithms (this should include a “data structures” course or comparable experience)
- Not already completed a graduate degree in computer science, computer engineering or a closely related field
