Equipping yourself with our Master of Computer Science and Engineering Degree from University of Fairfax is a great opportunity to become career-ready in this fast-growing industry.


From a mainframe that took up an entire room, we’ve come to building an iPhone that can hold 100 times more data and process data 1000 times faster within a span of 50 years. Large-scale computing power that was only available to organizations the size of NASA and IBM in the 1990s has now been democratized and the same is now available to a 16-year old with a credit card – thanks to Cloud Computing.
