Graduate Programs

The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences offers master's and doctoral degrees through its Computer Science Department.  Graduate degrees are excellent preparation for careers in top corporations or university research centers. Recent graduates have gone on to rewarding and challenging positions in such leading corporations as Microsoft, Google, and Yahoo!

Computer Science

The M.S. degree provides a solid foundation in computer science theory and practice, fully preparing students for a career in computing or for further study leading to a doctorate. Advanced undergraduates can also pursue a joint B.S./M.S. in computer science through UAlbany. Computer science graduates can look forward to careers in programming, systems analysis, network administration, database development, security analysis, IT, software engineering, and more. Details about requirements for admission and degree requirements for an M.S. in Computer Science can be found on the departmental web site.

Student and professor working togetherThe Ph.D. program prepares students for productive careers as computer science research scholars in universities, or as computer science researchers in industrial research and development or government agencies. The program develops the student's ability to recognize and formulate significant research problems, to express those using appropriate abstract models, to apply theoretical and/or experimental techniques for their solution, and to transmit the results to the scientific community. Students must have a bachelor’s degree to apply. Other details about requirement for admission and degree requirements can be found on the departmental web site.

Computer Engineering

Graduate programs in computer engineering are currently in development and going through the official approval process. Prospective students interested in pursuing graduate study in computer engineering should contact a Computer Engineering faculty member for advisement. Research interests, publications, and brief faculty bios are included on faculty member pages.
