CGGT Non-CS Background

Candidates with Non-Computer Science and/or Engineering Undergraduate Degrees

Since this is a specialized, one-year graduate-level Masters program, students seeking admission to the CGGT program are assumed to already have a Bachelor's degree in either Computer Science or Engineering. Candidates with at least two years of course work at the undergraduate level in Computer Science and/or Engineering at a four year University also will be considered for admission to the program.

Students seeking admission with non-computer science and/or engineering undergraduate backgrounds will require a minimum of two years to complete the program. The first year will be spent in the CIS Department's Master's in Computer and Information Technology (MCIT ) program; upon satisfactory completion of the MCIT program, the student may pursue the Computer Graphics and Game Technology program. Such students, having taken a total of 16 courses, will receive two degrees: a Master of Computer and Information Technology and a Master of Science in Engineering in Computer Graphics and Game Technology.
