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.
