The Department of Computer Science blends scholarship and research with advanced studies, offering excellent opportunities to graduate students. Our program offers an MS in Computer Science and a PhD in Engineering with a concentration in Computer Science. The relatively small size of the program and friendly campus atmosphere promote close interaction among students and faculty. Faculty members work closely with colleagues in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Environmental and Civil Engineering, as well as maintain strong collaborations with TTU's Centers of Excellence and other leading institutions and national laboratories to build a unique and effective environment for graduate research, learning, and well-rounded training.
The Department of Computer Science offers advanced studies leading to a Master of Science degree in Computer Science with a concentration in Internet-Based Computing. Our MS degree program in Computer Science is driven by two distinct needs that are fueled by the growth in technological companies and jobs in the Middle Tennessee and Upper Cumberland regions. These needs include: *Opportunities for personnel from surrounding industries to upgrade their professional skills. *A strong academic program that prepares graduates to pursue a terminal (PhD) degree in Computer Science.
In order to meet the needs listed above, the following learning objectives are emphasized by the Masters's program: *The student should gain breadth of knowledge in the discipline and depth in the specific area of his/her specialization. *The student should learn and gain experience in doing independent academic work. *The student should demonstrate knowledge of the techniques, methods, and disciplines of computer science research.
Computer Science at Tennessee Tech
You can earn your master’s in computer science from an established, fully accredited university as a full-time or parttime student. As a full-time graduate student, you can get involved in campus activities including exciting research projects with faculty. Or, as a part-time student, you can earn your degree while still maintaining your professional or personal schedule. Tennessee Tech’s computer science graduate program offers students the opportunity to pursue a master’s degree in exciting research areas, including security, distributed computing and knowledge discovery. The program focus is to enhance research and professional skills. Coursework emphasizes practical outcomes as well as theoretical perspectives. Upon program completion, graduates are equipped to pursue jobs in a variety of industries, advance in their current professions or even take their graduate studies further. Tennessee Tech also offers a Ph.D. program.
The program is designed for graduates of approved undergraduate programs. Thus a baccalaureate degree in civil engineering is required for full standing. Applicants that have an undergraduate degree in a closely related field will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and may be admitted to full standing upon completion of identified background courses. International application deadlines: October 1, 2015 for spring (January) 2016 start and May 1, 2016 for fall (August) 2016 start.
