Technology advances so quickly that only the most prepared employees will stay ahead of the curve. You can gain that professional edge by fine-tuning your expertise and deepening your skill set through a Brandeis master's degree program. Students obtain specialized training and exposure to cutting-edge research, just minutes from Boston's 'technology corridor' and the thriving high-tech sector in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A master's degree can pave the way to higher earnings and can advance your career.
Our accomplished alumni work in software engineering, bioinformatics, robotics, finance, and other fields, or have pursued their doctoral degrees in computer science.
If you pursue a doctoral degree in computer science at Brandeis, you will work closely with world-renowned scholars who are innovative thinkers. You will be part of a close-knit community with a lively roster of visiting experts. You will enjoy access to diverse, cutting-edge computer science research labs, all while being a few miles away from a high-tech hub that is home to Google and Microsoft. And you will learn to teach even as you learn the science, participating in the design and delivery of course lectures and eventually presenting lectures yourself—valuable skills whether you’re planning on a career in academics, research or industry.
