A graduate M.S. degree, both online and on campus, is also available within the Computer Science Department. The school teaches and encourages leadership, creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship.

All new students will be eligible for a “co-op” experience, where classroom learning is blended with a real-life occupational experience with our partners, lasting for a summer and the proceeding or following semester. Not only does this educational methodology ease the transition from University to work, but the co-op experience also frequently results in an offer of full-time employment upon graduation.

Our faculty are dedicated, committed teachers with strong advisory skills. Both classroom and laboratory courses are deliberately limited in size, creating a pervasive, intimate atmosphere and easy rapport between student peers and our highly qualified faculty. Up to date laboratories support theoretical teaching, and our distinguished faculty constantly update courses as new technological developments ensue. The School’s research involvement is high, and many instructors hold grant awards supporting their investigations.
