The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science invites you to explore the program leading to M.S. degree in Computer Science program at Texas A&M University - Kingsville.


Computer science (CS) is one of the fastest-growing academic disciplines.  Qualified CS professionals are in high demand. According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, CS related employment is expected to grow 11 percent from 2014 to 2024 in the United States, which is faster than the average of all other fields in the country. In addition, the White House predicts that there will be 1.4 million computer science-related jobs available by 2020, but US has only 400,000 computer science graduates with the necessary skills to fill them. The skill sets in greatest demand are data science, network administration, cyber security, web development/website design, software development, parallel processing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and informatics. Given the computing technology’s explosive growth and its widespread use by all categories of businesses, people with diverse educational and professional backgrounds are seeking advanced degrees in computer science. That is why a master’s degree in CS is more attractive to a broader group of individuals including those with non-CS undergraduate degrees.
