Computer Science and Statistics Graduate Programs
Both M.S. and Ph.D degrees in Computer Science are offered, as well as M.S. degrees in Statistics, and graduate certificates in Digital Forensics.
The M.S. in Computer Science program has one of the least structured course requirements of graduate programs in the region, specifically designed to allow a student and their advisor to determine the best program of study for the student’s interests. Students in the Ph.D. program typically work with one of our research groups to produce new intellectual contributions to the Computer Science field. The M.S. in Statistics program often involves multidisciplinary work with one of the many research projects on campus. The graduate certificate in Digital Forensics is a program that allows students to get graduate credentials in an important and emerging field without having to commit to the requirements of a full Master’s degree.
Our graduate programs are committed to meeting the needs of both industrial professionals and full-time graduate students. Our graduate courses are offered at convenient times for professionals. For full-time graduate students, the department has Teaching Assistantships and Research Assistantships available that pay a stipend, cover tuition, fees, and insurance.
Thesis, non-thesis and applied non-thesis tracks are available with support in any of our research areas.
Graduate program that provides exposure to problem formulation, solution techniques, and written and verbal presentation of results giving our students an advantage in the job market.
The Graduate Certificate in Digital Forensics is a formal graduate degree, but is focused on digital forensics and requires less course work than a full Master’s Degree.
The Graduate Certificate in Cyber Security is a formal graduate degree, but is focused on cyber security and requires less course work than a full Master’s Degree.
The Ph.D. in Computer Science is a research degree where the student completes a major research project that enhances the field of Computer Science.
