M.S. in Computer Science Overview
The Master of Science serves several audiences, from the professional with extensive industrial experience to the recent graduate aiming ultimately for an advanced research degree. In all cases, UMass Lowell's computer science program prepares students for work environments requiring continued growth. Our graduates work across industries, in large and small organizations, including Amazon, Bloomberg, EMC, Facebook, Fidelity, Google, IBM, Microsoft, MITRE and Raytheon.
- Opportunities abound for students to work on industry-sponsored research projects and in well-funded research centers and research labs, like the Human Robot Interaction (HRI) Lab.
- Students collaborate with their peers on projects and field competitive teams, like the one that developed the "Rover Hawk" robot that took first place at a NASA competition.
- Students work with and learn from faculty who are experts in AI and Machine Learning, Information/Systems Security and Big Data.
