Computer Science (MS)


The Computer Science MS program at the University of North Carolina Greensboro has been designed for students to become both technically competent and sufficiently well-grounded in theory so that they can contribute to fundamental research and development in Computer Science. Our MS program provides a vehicle for students to prepare for a career in research or the profession. Students will:
1) learn advanced topics in Computer Science,
2) learn to apply concepts, methods, and theories in advanced topics of Computer Science and to apply analysis and synthesis methods used in Computer Science,
3) acquire research and professional skills for their post-graduate career and for lifelong professional development.

Learning Outcomes

Analysis, Synthesis, and Design
Students will demonstrate proficiency in designing software and computer solutions based on concepts and theories of computer science.

Students will show evidence of competency in oral and written communications skills through oral presentations (project presentation, department seminar or conferences), technical reports and published research papers in conferences and/or reputed journals.

Comprehension and Knowledge
Students will exhibit mastery of subjects in fundamental and advanced computer science topics; exhibit improvement in mathematics and science that underlie scientific applications; compare and discriminate between ideas; assess value of theories and presentations; exhibit ability to translate knowledge into new context, to interpret facts, compare and contrast, to order, group and infer causes, to predict consequences.

Lifelong Learning and Self Development
Students will demonstrate ability to acquire the techniques, skills and modern tools necessary for computer science practices; competence in research and development skills that enhance employability.

Student will be able to develop significant software projects, or obtain theoretical and conceptual results both individually and as part of a team.
