About the Master of Science in Computer Science Program

The Master of Science in Computer Science degree provides opportunities to address present day challenges and develop technologies for the future. This degree program offers a rigorous course of study covering the theory, implementation, and design of computing systems.  The university supports graduate research through state-of-the-art experimental and computational research facilities under close faculty supervision in computer science or analytics tracks with thesis or project track offered for analytics students.

Today’s job market gives a competitive edge to professionals trained in the most up-to-date technology. Likewise, businesses benefit from a workforce equipped to envision and execute groundbreaking ideas. A Master’s Degree in Computer Science from Florida Polytechnic University delivers both.

WHY GET A MASTER OF SCIENCE IN COMPUTER SCIENCE?

Master’s students at Florida Polytechnic University have access to the cutting-edge technology and knowledge necessary to perform their research.  At Florida Poly students can study autonomous vehicles, augmented/virtual reality, cyber-security, and more. When the student graduates, their master’s degree will represent their ability to define a problem and test different solutions to solve that problem. Students will gain communication and analytical skillsets in conjunction with mastering concepts in computer science. This makes the student far more attractive to employers giving them an advantage in a competitive job market. Employers often equate a master’s degree with three years of experience and the average master’s student pay increases by $30,000 upon graduation (Quartz). Join Florida Poly’s computer science master’s program and earn a degree that will lead to a future of vast potential.
