MASTER OF SCIENCE IN COMPUTER SCIENCES (M.S.C.S.)

Program Objectives: 

The M.Sc. of Computer Sciences provides students with an opportunity to broaden their base of knowledge and increase their research capabilities in the field of Computer Science. The program is comprehensive, practical and flexible in nature and it offers students a wide range of core and elective courses in their field of interest. Throughout the entire program research and development are integrated which culminates into performing the thesis or a final project, at the end of the program.  Participants to the program come from a range of different walks of life and have academic backgrounds in a variety of fields. Generally, the program attracts undergraduates from the field of computer science, mathematics and engineering, but the University also welcomes applicants with less customary academic backgrounds, who seek to accommodate their change of personal or professional goals and objectives, and to build a solid academic background in computer science.

 

Learning Outcomes:

Upon successful completion of the Master of Science in Computer Sciences program, students will be able:​

  1. to identify, analyze, and synthesize scholarly literature relating to the field of computer science;

  2. to apply knowledge of computing and mathematics appropriate to the discipline of computer science;

  3. to design, implement, and evaluate computer-based systems, processes, components, or programs to meet required needs;

  4. to analyze problems and effectively and professionally apply computer science concepts, and designs relevant to their solution;

  5. to demonstrate knowledge and the practical application of software development tools, software systems, and modern computing platforms;

  6. to learn independently and the potential to engage in continuing professional development and academic training;

  7. to act autonomously and ethically in the planning and implementing of tasks at a professional level and dealing with complex and unpredictable situations;

  8. to communicate complex academic or professional issues clearly to specialist and non-specialist audience;

Admission Prerequisites:

To enter into the Master of Science in Computer Science program, students must have an earned bachelor’s degree in computer science or a related field. Prerequisite courses include:
