 Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) 

Professor Michael KearnsThe MSE degree program is designed to allow flexible planning of advanced study. The MSE student develops their own advanced study focus, and can arrange interdisciplinary programs in such areas as CIS and Telecommunications, CIS and Computational Linguistics, CIS and Biomedical Computation, etc. Graduate studies in the Department of Computer and Information Science offer the possibility for rewarding exploration and research. This is a uniquely exciting place to be.

 

Who Should Apply to the CIS MSE Program?

The Master of Science in Engineering in Computer and Information Science (MSE) program offers scholars the opportunity for advanced study in the scientific foundations of the rapidly growing field of computer science.  Applicants to the MSE program should have strong undergraduate training in mathematics and computer science. Candidates who do not have an undergraduate major in computer science should consider applying to the Master of Computer and Information Technology program (MCIT). CIS MSE students can pursue many areas within their curriculum - AI, robotics, databases, graphics, security, programming languages, etc.
