M.S. Computer Science
M.S. Computer & Information Science
New for Fall '14: The MS CS will be available as an online option for part-time students! Contact the Graduate Center at 315.792.7347 for details.
The Master of Science program in computer and information science is designed to equip students with a broad understanding of the discipline and a specialization in one of the following areas:
- Software Engineering
- Systems and Architectures
- Algorithms and Theory
- Artificial Intelligence and Modeling
Depth of understanding in the student's program of study is acquired through completion of core courses and electives, appropriately chosen from the graduate catalog.
A total of 33 graduate credit hours are required to complete the M.S. degree. The program also requires a thesis or project (6 credits and 3 credits, respectively, toward the 33 credit total). Many of the graduate courses require a mathematics background that includes one or more of Calculus, Probability and Statistics, Discrete Mathematics, and Linear Algebra. An adequately prepared student may take up to two graduate courses while in undergraduate standing and, in some cases, count them toward the M.S. degree program.
