The Computer and Information Sciences Department offers the following graduate programs through the
Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS):
GSAS Admissions (for Master's in Computer Science)
GSAS Admissions (for Master's in Cybersecurity)
Blending the analytical, practical and theoretical, the Master's program in
Computer Science begins with a solid foundation in computing, information and
systems. Students work closely with a faculty in such specialties as
communication and networks, telecommunication network design, object-oriented
databases for large systems, artificial intelligence, data mining, cybersecurity, bioinformatics, information retrieval
systems, and the design and analysis of algorithms.
New York City's status as the world's financial capital, media hub and major
center of the software and website development industry provides graduates of
this program with wide-ranging career opportunities, often facilitated by
internships during the course of study.
Research facilities include
the Informatics & Data Mining Lab, the Wireless Sensor Data Mining Lab, the Networking Lab, and the Robotics & Computer
Vision Lab as well as
an 88-core high-performance computing cluster
and other state of the art equipment and software.
GSAS Computer Science classes are held, with minor exceptions, at the
Lincoln Center campus in Manhattan. Most classes start after 4 p.m. for
the convenience of those who work.
The MSCS program requires 30 credits and can be completed by a full-time student in 3 or 4 semesters.
