The Utah Valley University Department of Labor, the Utah Department of Workforce Services, the Economic Development and Employer Planning System organization, and Burning Glass Technologies all indicate Computer Science is one of the highest growth areas in the high-tech sector, and a significant number of the jobs in this sector require advanced degrees beyond the undergraduate level.


The Utah Valley University Master of Computer Science has been developed as a part-time program to allow working professionals to continue working full-time while completing their degree. In keeping with the mission of UVU, the degree is focused on developing graduates who will enter the workforce as leaders and innovators by making our course work rigorous, relevant, and practical. While theory and research are always a part of a graduate degree, they are not the focus of the UVU MCS.

What does this mean to you as an MCS student?

  • You should expect courses that require 3+ hours of work outside of class for every 1 hour of lecture.
  • You should expect multiple hands-on assignments in every course that escalate in both depth and complexity as the course progresses.
  • You should expect to gain the fundamental skillset needed to evaluate and, if appropriate, apply the techniques/technologies taught in class in a real-world setting.
  • You should expect to work on projects where the lines of code measure in the thousands rather than the hundreds.
  • You should expect to work with a faculty mentor/advisor who will help guide you through the process of completing your graduate project.
  • You should expect to develop a greater level of confidence for tackling larger and more complex systems.
  • You should expect that as alumni of the MCS, your views and opinions will be valued by the CS Department.
