It seems fair to argue that computer technology has, more than anything else, shaped the modern world. Things that we now take for granted– the internet, mobile phones, medical technology – would not be possible without the major developments made in the field of computing, particularly over the past 20 years. A master’s in computer science can give you a specialized focus on an area of technology, helping you develop your skills and career prospects.Computer science deals information about computation, software, hardware and computer systems. The field consists of theoretical and practical approaches. Both of them contribute to research of the main important issues that computer science investigates: IT, which deals with computer and other systems, its development, artificial intelligence and mathematics, software engineering, systems and network engineering. Graduates can work in fields related to: manufacturing of computer and information systems, maintenance and sales of them as well as software and hardware developers, e-business and telecommunication networks experts.
The Master of Computer Science (MCS) should be thought of as a professional, terminal degree. This degree does not include a thesis, project, or final examination.
Applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit proof of English proficiency, which is satisfied by one of the following:
Requirements for the MCS degree include:
The major steps, and deadlines for completing them, required for the MCS degree is outlined in Section 4.3. Section 4.4 lists restrictions on the courses that can be used on the degree plan, as well as other common questions/issues.
