The department of computer science offers thesis-based master's and doctoral programs. In general, the master's program trains graduates who will become senior technical professionals in industry or prepares students for entry into a doctoral program. The doctoral program trains graduates for careers in academic or industrial research. We also offer a post-degree specialization certificate (PDSC) which is intended for students who have completed or are completing a four year University degree in some other discipline, and who wish to complete a Computer Science program in addition.
