The purpose of the graduate programs in Computer Science and Computer Science and Engineering is to facilitate the student's continued professional and scholarly development. The Master of Science (M.S.) programs are designed to extend the student's knowledge and emphasize a particular area of concentration. The Master of Software Engineering (M.SW.Engr.) program is designed to provide the student with the opportunity for professional development in the software engineering field. A Telecommunications Engineering Certificate is available for the M.S. degree. The M.S. degree is available in traditional lecture and at distance through the UT TeleCampus (www.telecampus.utsystem.edu). The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) programs are designed to prepare the student to conduct research and development in an area of concentration.
Typical areas of concentration include
computer systems: parallel processing, quality-of-service and resource management in distributed systems, scheduling and load balancing for parallel and distributed systems, tools for parallel programming, performance evaluation, fault-tolerant computing, interconnection networks, multimedia systems, real-time systems, memory system design;
