About

The areas of specialization include artificial intelligence, computer vision, networking, database systems, computer-human interaction, computer graphics, and numerical and symbolic computation.  Our faculty are accomplished researchers who pair their pursuit of research with a serious commitment to teaching in their discipline, supplemented by well defined liberal arts courses available from other departments within City College. Students majoring in Computer Science represent the diversity of New York City's population.  They share a common bond, which is their commitment to excel in their studies and ultimately succeed in their chosen careers. The Department of Computer Science is committed to providing them with a curriculum that satisfies both the technical demands of  today's business and the research needed to meet  tomorrow's information requirements.

Programme Structure

Computer Science deals with information: its storage, retrieval, and processing; its communication, control, and manipulation; its analysis, recognition, and display. This relatively new profession is concerned with computers, their organization, the theory that underlies them, and their application. Computer scientists concern themselves with the analysis of algorithms, data structures, computer systems, the structure of computer languages, human-computer interaction, and applied logic.

Required score: 3

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 3 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

The choices for applicants interested in our M.S. in Computer Science program who do not have the equivalent of a B.S. in computer science are the following:

1)  -complete a second undergraduate degree in computer science, or

2)- complete the requisite computer science and mathematics courses in a computer science degree program as a non-matriculated student not in CCNY.
