The Department of Computer Science and Engineering offers a program of graduate study leading to the Master of Science in Computer Science degree. The program balances theory, software, hardware, and practice with coursework-only and thesis options available.
At least one year of formal coursework in computer programming. Formal coursework in data structures, computer organization, and operating systems is also required.
The materials covered in these courses should be equal to Wright State University courses:
If you do not have a year of formal coursework in computer programming, you may show programming proficiency by:
Students lacking other prerequisite coursework may be assigned additional prerequisite courses upon admission.
Bachelor’s degree from an ABET accredited program in computer science or equivalent
Minimum 3.0 overall GPA or a minimum 2.7 overall GPA and a 3.0 GPA in selected computer science, computer engineering and mathematics courses.
GRE General Test scores are required but are waived for WSU-CECS applicants with a BA or BS degree and a minimum GPA of 3.3, for applicants from a U.S. institution with a graduate degree in engineering, science or mathematics; or for applicants providing evidence of superior research accomplishments or potential.
Program Learning Outcomes:
Graduates of the Master’s of Science program in Computer Science shall:
- Have the ability to apply abstract reasoning to complex problems in computer science, and
- Have the ability to solve a broad range of problems through the application of current computer science techniques.
