Program Overview

Computing is a discipline without boundaries. As we build strong research and teaching environments for our graduate students and faculty, we extend collaboration and outreach across campus, to our colleagues in engineering, science, and business, as well as to industry, local communities, professional societies, and alumni.

The Computer Science Department leads computing-related research and education at Michigan Tech.  Our graduates are employed by Amazon, AMD, Ford, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Intel, Qualcomm, Raytheon, Texas Instruments and more. Create your future through our graduate degree programs.

Computer Science MS, PhD

The Michigan Tech master's or doctorate in computer science program is led by faculty experts in computer architecture, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, cybersecurity, data science, distributed systems, embedded and multimedia systems, graphics and visualization, human-computer interaction, machine learning, software engineering, virtual environments, and wireless networks. Our research turns Big Data into understandable datasets while virtual reality researchers study the interplay of human cognition and virtual environments. 

Cybersecurity MS

The Masters of Science in Cybersecurity provides students opportunities to pursue cross-disciplinary graduate study of theories with the knowledge of science, engineering, and technology, preparing them for a career in information security. Students select one of three concentrations: Trusted Software Engineering, Critical Infrastructure Protection, and Network Security Management

Computer Science Accelerated MS

The Accelerated Master's in Computer Science is designed for students who want to fast track their education to gain a competitive edge for a career in industry or to pursue doctoral studies in computer science. The Accelerated Master's program allows students to count up to 6 approved credits towards both an MS in Computer Science and a BS in Computer Science, or Software Engineering. Students choose from a thesis option, a report option, or a coursework option.
