The Computer Science program at Princeton University is a two-year, full-time program. All admitted students are initially enrolled in the Master of Science in Engineering (M.S.E.), thesis-required track. 


Key facts

In the spring of year 1, as part of readmission, all students are given the option to switch to the Master of Engineering (M.Eng.), non-thesis track. Students opting to remain on the Computer Science M.S.E. track at Princeton University must have a confirmed research adviser and should also have a preliminary thesis proposal. Switching tracks will be permitted through January of year 2.

Teaching experience is considered to be a significant part of graduate education.  Funding is normally in the form of teaching assistantships covering the four semesters of the program. Nonnative English speakers must have a TOEFL speak score of 27 or better to be considered for a teaching assistantship. Summer funding for M.S.E. candidates in the form of a research assistantship may be offered at the adviser's discretion.
