Students in the master's degree program in computer science and engineering can choose from two degree options:
Plan A: This program gives students the opportunity to focus on a specific area within computer science and engineering, perform preliminary research within that topic and write a thesis.
Plan B: This option, which doesn't require a thesis, allows students to study several different subjects within the discipline without necessarily specializing on any of them. Instead of writing a thesis, students must complete a graduate-level capstone course that integrates work across previous courses and demonstrates general mastery.
Regardless of your course of study, the master's degree program offers an integrated course of study covering the theory, implementation and design of information processing systems as well as the design of computing and communication hardware systems.
You don't need to decide whether you want to pursue Plan A or Plan B immediately, but you are encouraged to meet with your graduate advisor to discuss your coursework and plan for graduate school.
