Computer Science

The M.S. program in Computer Science develops a solid foundation that can lead the student to continue on to doctoral studies or to take a position in industry.  Computer Science PSM-seeking students will be advised into a 32 credit PSM sequence within the M.S. program with greater emphasis on specific topics and on applications rather than theory, including an Internship, ICSI 698, leading to a substantial written report.  These students will additionally need to complete and earn, for the Advanced Certificate, at least 9 additional graduate credits in “plus” courses that will provide exposure to business, ethics, policy, and other issues outside the traditional scientific realm. The “PSM” track—the M.S. in Computer Science plus the Advanced Certificate in Professional Science Management, will serve master’s students whose careers progress into management, marketing, sales, or into other areas not primarily scientific.
