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.
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.
John Kilgo VI began working at MITRE Corporation more than three years ago as an intern, when he was a UMass Lowell undergraduate. Now, he’s employed there full time as a software systems engineer, while enrolled part time in the master’s program in computer science.
Shruti Jain came to UMass Lowell for its hands-on teaching approach. She’s gotten lots of opportunities to apply what she’s learning – as well as a coveted internship with Red Hat.
Adam Norton’s experience at the UMass Lowell robotics lab and Revolving Museum allowed him to work with iRobot on educational school visits to get the next generation hooked on robotics.
Vanessa Chen likes computer science because it’s both logical and creative.
