The mission of The Ohio State University Department of Computer Science and Engineering Graduate Program is to develop researchers, educators and practicing professionals with advanced skills in computing.
The Master's program is divided into two tracks, one a research track, requiring a Master's thesis on some original research, and the other a coursework track, with a larger coursework requirement and a written Master's comprehensive examination. The objective of the research track is to provide students with advanced level knowledge in computing while developing their ability to do independent, creative research. The coursework track's objective is to provide advanced level knowledge and skills that will be valuable for practicing professionals. Both tracks give students a solid background in the theory and foundations of computing and expose them to the latest technology and ideas in computer science.
The program's philosophy is to provide students a broad graduate level education in the fundamentals of Computer Science and Engineering and also provide the opportunity for deeper study in a specialized sub-area of interest to the student. Students work out the details of their program in close consultation with their advisors.
Two options are offered:
- Thesis Option (Research Track)
- Non-Thesis Option (Coursework Track)
