Find which graduate program is right for you.
We offer three graduate degrees: an M.S. in Computer Science and Engineering with specialized tracks in data science, software engineering, information assurance, multimedia processing, computer networks, and computer architecture and systems; an M.S. in Software Engineering with a set of electives that allow you to expand the breadth of your technical proficiency; and a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering for those interested in intensive independent research and contributing to new scholarship in the field.
If you are a working professional looking to update your skills or seeking to change your career path but can't commit to a degree program, our graduate-level certificate programs in Software Engineering, Networking, and Information Assurance are a great way to move ahead.
