Computer Science Programs

The UMass Lowell Computer Science Department offers programs leading to bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees that are a blend of both applied and theoretical aspects of computation, including a bioinformatics option and a data science option.  

We also offer, in conjunction with the Division of Graduate, Online & Professional Studies, the Computer Science Certificate. The certificate prepares the working professional, who may not have earned a bachelor's degree in computer science, for graduate work in computer science.

Degree Programs

Our graduates are highly sought after by regional, national and international companies and research organizations, including 3COM, Analog Devices, AstraZeneca, Avid, BAE, Cisco, Dell EMC, Fidelity, Google, IBM, InforSense, iRobot, Merck, MITRE, Microsoft, Motorola, NASA, Nortel, Oracle, Raytheon, and Toyota Research Institute, as well as academia.
