Masters Programs Offered by the Computer Science Department

The computer science department offers 7 Masters degrees and several graduate certificates. A Masters degree requires completion of 30 credits (10 courses) while a graduate certificate requires completion of 12 credits (4 courses). If you have taken post-graduate courses at another institution, or taken Stevens courses as a non-matriculated student, some of these courses may count toward your degree or certificate: up to 3 courses may, with approval, be applied toward your Masters degree and one course may, with approval, be applied toward a certificate.

The most popular degree in the MS in Computer Science. This degree is highly flexible, intended to accommodate students who have a wide variety of backgrounds and a wide variety of interests. The other degrees are more focused, intended for students who want to specialize in a certain area of computer science. One Masters degree, that in Service Oriented Computing, is intended for students who do not have a background in computer science and now want to acquire employable computer skills quickly. The various degrees are described by the links on the left.

A graduate certificate is intended for a student who does not have the time to devote to completing a Masters degree. Each certificate is a defined set of 4 courses that offer an advanced education in some specific field of computer science. Certificates also are described by one the links on the left.

Our M.S. in Computer Science is our flagship graduate program. We have designed a flexible program that allows you maximum flexibility to tailor your program of study to your interests. We have found that students are particularly interested in some combination of databases, software engineering and security, so we have developed suggested concentrations and study plans that combine these areas of specialization. Other suggested areas of concentration include network and systems administration, mobile and embedded systems, and Web applications.

Our M.S. in Cybersecurity is a rigorous program in the art and practice of security and privacy, including fundametals of cryptography, and threats and defences for secure systems. The emphasis in this program is on deep technical skills that may be complemented with courses in security administration, as opposed to the security courses suggested for the MS/CS that emphasize broad principles and security administration.

Our M.S. in Enterprise and Cloud Computing is intended to educate high-end IT professionals with an interest in enterprise computing. You will learn about distributed computing from both the reliability and the security points of view, including service oriented architecture. This program has a particular emphasis on systems administration and governance. A typical backend setup will involve several virtualized servers, running heterogeneous guest operating systems on top of hypervisors, organized in a highly available cluster. Data processing and web service applications will have service level agreements (SLAs) that must be honored.

Our M.S. in Enterprise Security and Risk Management is an interdisciplinary Masters of Science between the Department of Computer Science and the Howe School of Technology Management, the M.S. in Enterprise Security and Risk Management provides master?s level training in enterprise security, security risk analysis, security economics, and legal aspects of information security. The program will provide the students with the skills to pursue common certifications (including CISSP, CISM ISO 27000, CRISC, CGEIT). Applicants should have a B.S. degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Telecom Management, or a similar field. A GPA of at least 3.0 is required. The program is particularly geared towards professionals in government organizations as well as the financial and telecommunication industries.

Our M.S. in Game Design and Simulation Programming degree exposes students to the fundamentals of interactive fame design, state-of-the-art graphics and animation and behavior modeling, and the methodologies for game development. The program also provides the skills and environment needed to be a successful member of the gaming community. The program prepares students for positions in the gaming industry as well as in industrial, government, education and research organizations involved in simulation, visualization, training, and "edutainment". Furthemore, the program will prepare students for entry in elite PhD programs in Computer Science, Remote Sensing, and Geographic Information Systems.

Back to the top

Our M.S. in Service Oriented Computing is an accelerated professional education program that provides you with the software engineering skills for the modern era of Web and service-oriented applications. You do not require any programming background for this program. The MS/SOC includes a programming spine, with introductory courses that can be omitted if you already have some programming background (such as an introductory course in college). The MS/SOC eschews much of the traditional Computer Science focus on teaching data structures and algorithms, and instead provides an accelerated track for learning how to program distributed applications using tools such as Visual Basic and .NET. The MS/SOC supplements this basic programming spine with courses in information architecture and Web design, human computer interaction (HCI), requirements analysis and service oriented architecture (SOA). Possible electives include courses in data mining, privacy, health informatics and databases, as well as language electives for example in C#.

Back to the top

Our M.S. in Multimedia Experience and Management brings together two elements of user interfaces and information presentation: multimedia content experience and content management. Graduates of the program will have a firm grounding in computer graphics, human computer interaction and software engineering. Beyond this, they can choose to specialize in multimedia experience (advanced graphics, visual analytics) or multimedia management (distributed computing). Both tracks include courses in software engineering (user experience engineering and software architecture).
