The Programs

The Department of Computer Science offers programs of graduate study leading to the PhD and the MS in computer science and a graduate certificate in database technology. Faculty interests in computer science include compilers, computability theory, computer communication protocols, database systems, formal languages, office automation systems and electronic publishing, operating systems, programming languages, queuing theory, semantics, and software engineering.

The computer laboratory of the department operates a network of SUN workstations using the UNIX operating system, as well as several other kinds of computing equipment. The department is also a member of the Internet. All graduate courses are scheduled in late afternoon and evening. The program is open to full-time and part-time students as well as those who want to strengthen specific skills by taking single courses.
