Computer Science

Graduate programs in Computer Science involve specialized study and mentored research in fundamental results and state-of-the-art techniques in computing and its applications, leading to advanced career opportunities in industry and academia.

Program Description

Graduate programs give students a broad knowledge in all areas of Computer Science, and an overall perspective of the field, its structure, and its problems, as well as the opportunity to focus on specific areas spanning theoretical computer science, computer software and systems, artificial intelligence, emerging problems and cross-cutting challenges.  MS students draw on an evolving set of concentrations (including data analytics, machine learning, systems/security, robotics and vision/visualization/graphics) to plan specialized coursework and can pursue capstone projects or an MS thesis in addition. PhD students follow similar coursework to MS students, then go on to conduct innovative dissertation research in one of the department’s many research groups, contributing new ideas and insights to the scientific community.
