The mission of the Computer Science Department’s graduate program is to serve as a center for intellectual and educational development that promotes critical and logical thinking, and the mastery of a student focused Computer Science curriculum. The graduate program strives to give all students a solid foundation in the core areas of computer science, to prepare students for research and study beyond the master’s level, and to prepare students for careers in computing and software development. In support of this mission, a curriculum has been developed which encourages a formal, abstract, theoretical, and practical approach to the study of computer science, while providing students with experience on state-of-the-art equipment. A number of hardware and software computing platforms are available to students.
Goal 1: Students will acquire a broad knowledge of theoretical and applied topics in computer science and
develop communication skills.
Goal 2: Students will develop creative thinking, problem solving and research skills, and acquire expertise in a
specific computer science domain.
