Masters Degree

The Department of Computer and Information Sciences is offering a Masters degree in Software Engineering.  This degree is based on a curriculum from the Software Engineering Institute (SEI).  It is designed to teach principles in engineering, computer science, and information engineering.  This degree may be a terminal degree for software engineering professionals or preparation for receiving a Ph.D. in computing.

The Department is also offering a Masters degree in Computer Science.  This program prepares students for a professional career in Software Development or Computer Science research.  It is designed to give students a deep foundation in computer science and exposes students to the complete life-cycle of computer application development.  This includes modeling, algorithm development, software development processes, programming languages, and development frameworks.  This program allows students to define an area of interest (concentration), providing a background and in-depth study in areas of expertise of faculty.  Current possibilities include mobile computing, security, bioinformatics, among others. This degree may be a terminal degree or preparation for receiving a Ph.D. in computing.
