About

The Computer Science and Engineering program at University of Connecticut satisfies a number of different needs. Many students enter the master’s program in order to more fully prepare for a career in industry: at the completion of the program they intend to seek employment in a computing-related field. Other students plan on continuing their studies at the Ph.D. level. 

Overview

The master’s degree in this case represents a preparatory period designed to give the necessary tools and background needed to carry out the more individualized and self-directed research involved in Ph.D. studies.

Program Description

  • The M.S. program in Computer Science and Engineering (and at University of Connecticut , in general), has two options, Plan A (thesis) and Plan B (non-thesis), roughly reflecting the two choices above. Each of these programs requires a total of 30 credits, with the thesis counting for 9 credits in the Plan A program. Thus the Plan A program allows a student to combine individual study with general coursework. We strongly encourage the Plan A degree for students aspiring to pursue doctoral studies.
  • Both programs are designed to provide comprehensive knowledge of the theoretical and applied aspects of computer science. The Master’s program assumes that the student already has a background in computing equivalent to a B.A. or B.S. in Computer Science, Computer Science and Engineering, or Computer Engineering. Well qualified students without this background will require additional undergraduate course work to make up any deficiencies. Further details appear below.

Other requirements

General requirements

You must hold a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent from a regionally accredited college or university.The Graduate School does not require a third-party credential evaluation, however we accept evaluations from the following services:

  • NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) or
  • AICE (Association of International Credential Evaluators)

If your degree is a 3 year bachelor’s degree from India, Canada, Australia, Sri Lanka or certain other countries, we will not consider the degree to be equivalent with a 4 year US bachelor’s degree. Even if the degree has been evaluated as a 4 year degree by an outside credential evaluator that is a member of NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) or AICE (Association of International Credential Evaluators), we will not consider the degree to be equivalent with a 4 year US bachelor’s degree.TranscriptsPersonal Statement of Purpose
