About

The M.S. degree program in computer science provides students with advanced training in the fundamental principles and processes of computation. The program focuses on the technical aspects of both software and hardware.

Computer Science faculty are actively engaged in a wide variety of research endeavors. Research efforts are concentrated in artificial intelligence and neural nets, computer architecture, database, graphics and visualization, networks, parallel and distributed computing, programming languages, simulation, and software engineering. A bioinformatics concentration is available. Graduate laboratory, research, and teaching assistantships are available to graduate students.

The computer science department accepts applications for the M.S. program each semester and for the Ph.D. program only fall semester with the general deadlines applying. However, in order to be considered for graduate assistantships, applicants must have all application materials in by February 15 for fall semester and by August 15 for spring semester. No financial aid is offered to new applicants for summer semesters.
