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.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
Applicants whose native language is not English are required to submit proof of English proficiency, which is satisfied by one of the following:
