    towers

    Economic growth and efficiency depend more than ever on computers and computing. Increased processing power and network access is now available. Wireless access areas are increasingly common. Vast amounts of information can be accessed over the Web.

    All of this provides a unique opportunity for the next generation of computing technology. Of particular importance today are networked information systems, computer and network security, Web services, and also Web search and data mining.

    “Advances in computing technology and computational thinking have radically changed the way we work, play, search for information, transact business, and solve problems. Our computer science master’s program gives you the background to help create the next generation of innovations.”
