Program Overview

Computing is a discipline without boundary. 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.

Alumni are in faculty positions at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, University of Houston, and the University of Rochester, among others. Graduate students have received the Google Anita Borg Scholarship and a NASA-Harriet G. Jenkins Predoctoral Fellowship Award. Our graduates are employed by Amazon, AMD, Ford, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Intel, Qualcomm, Raytheon, Texas Instruments and more. 

The Computer Science Department leads computing-related research and education at Michigan Tech. Create your future through our graduate degree programs.
