Graduate-level research in human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, programming, databases, and software engineering, among other areas, makes this one of the most prominent departments nationally. A key area of strength is the collaboration opportunities with other centers and departments. In one example of that collaboration, the department will share in a $250 million gift to the university from the Coleman Institute to develop technologies that will enhance the lives of people with cognitive disabilities. Over the next few years the department will also use four successive awards to improve its computing infrastructure. Artificial intelligence, databases, hardware systems, human-centered computing, hypermedia, machine learning, networks, numerical analysis, parallel computation, program analysis, programming languages, scientific computing, security, software engineering, software systems, speech and natural language processing, systems, and theory. Related areas of study: cognitive science, speech, and graphics/virtual reality.
The Master of Engineering (ME) does not require a residency on campus and is intended to meet the needs of those practicing engineers who are working full time outside the university. It allows participants to pursue an integrated program of studies by specializing in one engineering discipline and selecting courses from other engineering fields and business subjects related to the individual student's professional work.
The Master of Science degree permits graduate students the flexibility in defining specialized interdisciplinary fields that meet their professional needs.We offer two types of MS degree:
1. MS with either a thesis option or a course only option. This MS degree allows students to either work on a MS thesis OR take 10 graduate level CS courses to complete the degree requirements. More information is available at the department website http://www.colorado.edu/cs/graduates/ms-degree
2. MS with sub-plan in Data Science & Engineering (DSE). This MS/DSE degree allows students to work on the 10 courses only option and specialize in the Data Science and Engineering sub-plan. Under this option, students need to take specific courses to complete the DSE sub-plan requirements. More information is available at the department website http://www.colorado.edu/cs/graduates/master-science-computer-science-data-science-engineering-dse-sub-plan
Studies leading to the doctor of philosophy degree must be chosen to contribute to special competence and a high order of scholarship in a broad field of knowledge. Although the field of study will normally be in the department of computer science, except for essential related subject matter, studies may include one or more closely related departments. What shall constitute an acceptable organized program of study and research is established in consultation with a major advisor and without regard to the organization of academic departments in the university.
Opportunities for dual degree include:
Hardware Requirement: CSCI 2400
Teaching assistantships (TA), research assistantships (RA), and grader positions are available. PhD students receive priority for TA and RA positions.
