MS in Computer Science (MSCS)

Program Level Outcomes (PLO’s)
At the conclusion of the MS in Computer Science Program, the student will demonstrate the ability to:

  • Apply theory of computation and advanced level concepts of programming
  • languages to industrial and other large scale projects.
  • Use Computer Science research methods including design of efficient
  • algorithms approaches to create and evaluate projects and generate
  • reports.
  • Use the software engineering process to develop software that matches
  • the operating system to customer requirements.
  • Successfully manage a software project from planning through
  • implementation to evaluation and improvement.

In addition to the above, the student with a focus on networking will demonstrate mastery over:

  • Hardware interface management between and among parallel and distributed systems, specifically as it pertains to connectivity and security.

In addition to the above, the student with a focus on software engineering will demonstrate mastery in:

  • Design and analysis techniques used to structure and implement industry level applications
  • Use of testing and measurement models to examine end product quality.
