Computer Science (MSCS)

The computer science program offers in-depth study and research in systems, theory, algorithms, and applied aspects of computer science. Completion of the master’s degree will prepare a student for employment in government and industry and for doctoral programs in computer science.

Students entering the master’s program in computer science will be expected to have a background equivalent to the bachelor’s program in computer science at Louisiana Tech. Any core computer science courses in the BS program at Tech will be considered deficiency courses for master’s students if they have not taken equivalent courses in their bachelor’s programs. A student may challenge a deficiency course by successfully completing a comprehensive examination and, as appropriate, programming projects. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available.
