  • AU's MS in Computer Science will boot up students' career in this dynamic, growing field. This program emphasizes hands-on, experiential learning to develop the knowledge and skills that will prepare students for a career in government, scientific, and commercial settings
  • Unlike other computer science MS programs, this university train students with diverse backgrounds, not just those who majored in computer science as an undergraduate. This allows the graduates to combine their computer science expertise with their prior education in another field to produce innovative applications of their knowledge and abilities in a variety of settings
  • Three tracks of specialization: applied computer science, game and computational media, and data science
