The University of Texas at Austin is conducting a fully online Master’s Degree in Computer Science programme through edX.
The program’s rigorous curriculum is based on UT’s on-campus degree, ensuring that you will receive the elite quality of instruction that defines a UT education.
You will be able to take classes in a flexible format that gives you the ability to pursue your educational goals in the manner most consistent with your career goals. The Master’s degree you receive at the end of your studies will be indistinguishable from its on-campus counterpart (will not say online) at only a fraction of the on-campus program costs.
Our graduates will enjoy access to world-class professors, a professional network of talented peers from across the globe, and a degree that will enable you to pursue career opportunities from one of the most in-demand fields in the modern economy.
The program can be completed in 1.5-3 years and the curriculum is highly flexible.
Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS). Your Degree will read exactly like those of an on-campus graduate.
A bachelor’s degree in computer science is preferred for admission to the online Master’s program. Other degrees may be considered (particularly in related fields such as electrical engineering, computer engineering or mathematics), however, applicants who do not hold a degree in computer science should have prior coursework or experience equivalent to the following Texas Computer Science undergraduate courses:
Discrete Math for Computer Science (CS 311)
Introduction to Programming (CS 312)
Data Structures (CS 314)
Algorithms and Complexity (CS 331)
Computer Organization and Architecture (CS 429)
Principles of Computer Systems (CS 439)
Exceptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Use of computers at work or some experience programming are not considered to be equivalent to a CS degree and courses.
TOEFL or the IELTS is required for international applicants. The minimum TOEFL score considered acceptable for admission by the graduate school is a 79 on the Internet-based test (iBT).
For the IELTS, a student must have an overall band of 6.5 on the Academic Examination. International applicants who are from a country where English is the only official language are exempt from this requirement.
Additionally, applicants are exempt from the requirement if they possess a bachelor’s degree from a U.S. institution or an institution in a country where English is the only official language. The requirement is not waived for applicants who have earned a Master’s – but not a bachelor’s – degree from a similar institution.
Tuition (30 credits at $333 each): $10,000
Additional fees per term: TBD
*Students may be eligible for federal financial aid subject to federal aid requirements.
