The Master of Science in Computer Science integrates fundamental theoretical concepts with sophisticated practical applications. Graduates will be prepared for employment in the field, and, for those students who are so interested, for further studies in computer science. Students must have the necessary prerequisite knowledge to undertake the study of advanced computer science topics.

Special Program Requirements

  1. No more than six credits of coursework with a grade of ‘C.” “B” average must be maintained.
  2. All courses taken as a temporary (non-degree) student must post grades of “A” or “B.”
  3. Plan of Study submitted to Student Advisory Committee before the end of nine semester credits; must be approved by the Graduate School before the student registers for the semester in which the degree is to be awarded.
  4. No more than three transfer courses (9 credit hours) accepted from other institutions may be used on a Plan of Study. Transfer courses must have a grade of B- or better to be eligible for transfer, and must be approved by the student’s graduate advisor and the chair of the graduate program. Courses used toward a degree at another institution do not qualify for transfer. Please refer to the section on graduate study for other regulations governing graduate study at Purdue Northwest.
