Computer Science - Graduate Master of Science Program

Computer Science: Master of Science Program

The University of Houston-Clear Lake offers a Master of Science in Computer Science. The degree builds on a thorough undergraduate study of Computer Science. Like the BS program, its curriculum balances a solid foundation in computer science with practical industrial technologies. The course of study prepares students for professional careers in the computer industry while giving them the foundation necessary for life-long learning in the rapidly changing computing field.

To enter the MS program, students must have undergraduate degrees related to computing. The department has many students with a wide range of majors other than computing; they take foundation courses to make up any deficiencies. The MS program requires core traditional computer science courses including DBMS, Advanced Operating Systems, Research Methods, Algorithms, and Programming Languages. It also offers practical courses which incorporate leading-edge technologies as electives, such as network programming, Web database development, data mining, and XML application development. Visit the Web pages on program objectives and curriculum for more information.
The program also provides the option for the students to select either a capstone project or a thesis. Capstone projects give students opportunities to work on real-world projects, usually mentored by a high-technology company partner in a team environment. Theses allow students to research and publish under the supervision of a faculty member.The Computer Science MS program is the largest program within the School of Science and Computer Engineering.
