The Department of Computer Science offers innovative graduate programs, combining computer science fundamentals with practical knowledge and technical excellence in the most advanced technologies. The Computer Science Department performs research funded by agencies including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the U.S. Air Force, the National Security Agency, the Naval Oceanographic Office, National Science Foundation and among others.


The research interests of the faculty cover many areas of computer science including software engineering, cybersecurity, secure software engineering, artificial intelligence, computational science, distributed systems, multiagent systems, computer security, visualization, trustworthy cloud computing and high-performance computing.

The department offers a Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) and a Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science (PhDCS). The Computer Science program from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University provides option of a “General Track,” and four specialization tracks: software engineering, cybersecurity, secure software engineering and artificial intelligence. 

Students can choose one of these specialization tracks, whereas students interested in other areas may select general track and design their curriculum in consultation with their advisor to satisfy all graduation requirements of an MSCS.

Programme Structure

Program Outcomes:

Graduates of the Computer Science Master’s program will be able to:

General requirements

  • It is assumed that all entering students have completed undergraduate courses in programming in a high‑level language (such as C, C++, or Java), in data structures, and in computer architecture, as well as mathematical maturity (for example Calculus I & II, and Discrete Mathematics or Switching Theory). 
  • Students who have not had such courses or their equivalent may be required to take undergraduate courses to remedy deficiencies, with no credit towards the degree. 
  • A 3.0 GPA and an undergraduate degree in computer science or a related discipline are required for unconditional admission.
