We are one of the largest computer science departments in the country and one of the most established. We offer a wide range of exciting honours degree programmes at graduate level (MSc).

Master of Science in Computer Science (MSc in CS)

Introduction

Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) is offered under the Faculty of Science which requires 36 credit hours. The Masters degree requires 30 credit hours (10 courses) of course work plus research thesis (6 credit hours). Students in the MSCS program must complete, present and defend a thesis. During the first two semesters all graduate students will be associated with a supervisor. Although not a requirement, a sound programming knowledge is preferable.
