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.
