The Department of Computer Science offers an Accelerated Master’s Program (AMP) that will enable qualified and motivated undergraduates to complete a BS and MS in computer science in 5 years. The BS and MS components dovetail in the senior year of undergraduate study, where they simultaneously fulfill baccalaureate and gradaute requirements. Students complete the MS during the fifth year.
The Department of Computer Science offers programs leading to the Master of Science and the Doctor of Philosophy degrees with a major in computer science. The department's programs prepare graduate students for positions in the design and development of computer systems and applications in business and industry and for scientific positions in industrial or academic computing research. Areas of research interest within the department currently include analysis of algorithms, cloud computing, compilers, computational biology, database systems, data visualization, embedded systems, natural language processing, networks, operating systems, theory, storage systems, security, and vision.
2 letters of recommendation, at least one from a Computer Science faculty member, that speak to your ability to complete a graduate degree in computer science and to successfuly meet the rigor of the accelerated program.
Statement of purpose highlighting your areas of interest and research in computer science, why you are interested in the Accelerated Master's Program, and your career goals.
Curriculum Vitae including any research you have been involved in, papers you have published, and conferences at which you have presented.
There are not any required exams.
Very limited financial aid available.
