Some students, however, may wish to complete the master’s program before deciding whether to pursue the Ph.D. To give such students a greater opportunity to become familiar with research, the department has a program leading to a master’s degree with distinction in research. This program is described in more detail below.
The Department of Computer Science (CS) at Stanford University operates and supports computing facilities for departmental education, research, and administration needs. Current CS students have access to a departmental student machine for general use and computer labs located in the Gates Building. In addition, most students have access to systems located in their research areas.
Each research group in Computer Science has systems specific to its research needs. These systems include workstations, computer clusters, GPU clusters, and local file servers. Servers and workstations running Linux , MacOS, or various versions of Windows are commonplace. Support for course work and instruction is provided on systems available through University IT (UIT) and theSchool of Engineering (SoE).
