The Department of Computer Science and Computer Information Systems offers exciting and high-quality bachelor’s degrees in computer science, along with master’s degrees in cyber systems and information security.
The Department of Computer Science is able to award a limited number of graduate assistantships each semester. Graduate students who are offered assistantships are selected through a competitive process by faculty based on the applicants’ eligibility, qualifications, and fit with teaching, research, or departmental needs. Applying for a graduate assistantship does not guarantee that you will receive an assistantship.
The College of Sciences offers students a scientific education to meet the needs of the 21st century, allowing them to compete for a variety of careers in an increasingly complex and evolving world.
Computer science is a relatively new discipline. In general, it is a science of using computers to solve problems. It is not about using software. High Performance Computing is the main theme of this degree program. In addition to obtaining general computer science training, you will learn multi-core architectures and programming.
Master of Computer Information Systems and Cybersecurity
This degree program prepares students to become leaders in the field of information and network security, offering instruction and research opportunities that provide graduates with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively assess, develop, and manage secure information networks and to respond to newly developed threats. Graduates often find career opportunities in information technology, homeland security, government and state agencies, private business and the armed forces.
A limited number of Graduate Teaching Assistantship positions are available each semester. There is no application process. Qualified candidates will be contacted directly based on their prior performance and attitudes in their courses.
