How to Apply

The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) program provides students with a broad background in software development and other core disciplines of computer science, ranging from systems, networking, and distributed programming to algorithms and theory.

Program Highlights

  • Real-World Experience – By completing an internship at a technology company, working on a faculty research project, or contributing to an open-source project, the practicum course helps students gain real world experience.
  • San Francisco Advantage – We're located in the heart of San Francisco and close to Silicon Valley, which boasts more tech companies than any other region in the U.S.
  • Faculty – Comprised of distinguished researchers and accomplished experts from the Bay Area’s tech companies, our faculty brings real world computing experience into the classroom.
  • Small Classes – Close interaction with full-time faculty is a hallmark of the program. Our cohort model enhances the experience during our students’ first year, allowing them to take core courses at the same time.
  • International Students – They may be eligible to work for 36 months in the U.S. after completion of the MSCS program via the OPT program and STEM extension.
