The MS in Computer Science and Engineering deepens your knowledge of computer science topics and increases your employability. It typically leads to better professional employment opportunities and a higher salary.
The MS in Computer Science and Engineering degree provides an opportunity for students to pursue a program of research in a specialized area and to develop a dissertation that embodies the results of original research and gives evidence of high scholarship.
Your degree requirements are defined in the CSE Graduate Handbook that was in force during your matriculation year.

CSE Force Registration Form. Any graduate student who wishes to be enrolled in a course and cannot do so via the HUB must complete the CSE Force Registration Form, which can be obtained from the Graduate Academic Coordinator in 338R Davis Hall. Once you have completed the form and obtained your faculty advisor's signature, please return it to the Graduate Academic Coordinator.
Please see the BS/MS in Computer Science and Engineering (Combined Master's) page to determine your degree requirements.
Any MS student (whether or not they have completed all course requirements for the MS) who has completed the core course requirements specified in the PhD Qualifying Process and who has made arrangements with a major professor may apply to the GAC for admission to the PhD program. This must be done before the end of the student's second year. (See the Graduate Admissions Coordinator in 338V Davis Hall for the appropriate application form.)
MS students who have not completed the core course (breadth) requirements specified in the PhD Qualifying Process by the end of their second year or have not made an arrangement with a major professor by the end of their second year will not be admitted to the PhD program.
