Graduate Program Description
The Department of Computer Science blends scholarship and research with advanced studies, offering excellent opportunities to graduate students. Our program offers an MS in Computer Science and a PhD in Engineering with a concentration in Computer Science. The relatively small size of the program and friendly campus atmosphere promote close interaction among students and faculty. Faculty members work closely with colleagues in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Environmental and Civil Engineering, as well as maintain strong collaborations with TTU's Centers of Excellence and other leading institutions and national laboratories to build a unique and effective environment for graduate research, learning, and well-rounded training.
Master's Program Description
The Department of Computer Science offers advanced studies leading to a Master of Science degree in Computer Science with a concentration in Internet-Based Computing. Our MS degree program in Computer Science is driven by two distinct needs that are fueled by the growth in technological companies and jobs in the Middle Tennessee and Upper Cumberland regions. These needs include:
- Opportunities for personnel from surrounding industries to upgrade their professional skills.
- A strong academic program that prepares graduates to pursue a terminal (PhD) degree in Computer Science.
PhD Program Description
The Department of Computer Science offers advanced studies leading to a PhD in Engineering with a concentration in Computer Science. Our PhD program offers students the opportunity to do advanced studies and research in cutting-edge technologies. Current research is sponsored by agencies such as NSF, DOE, NIH, DHS, DOD, and state and private sources among others.
