The Master of Science with a major in applied computer science (ACS) is designed to meet the objectives of students with a professional interest in computer-related fields and to help meet the computing expertise needs of their employers. As the name implies, the philosophy of the program is applied. Courses of the program stress a hands-on approach, applying theory to the practical problems of developing engineering and information systems with large software content. To meet the needs of working professionals, courses are primarily offered in the evening.

Graduates of the program will be in a position to assume leadership roles to:

  • Providing technological and managerial perspectives on information management and the development of information systems;
  • Formulating and assessing requirements for complex software-based systems;
  • Using the principles of systems analysis and software engineering to design, implement, and test complex software-based systems; and
  • Keeping abreast of the content and implications of technological advancements in applied computer sciences

Financial Aid

There are a limited number of graduate teaching assistantships available that include a stipend and substantial fee remission. Generally these are not available to first-term students.
