The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) is designed to prepare students for a Ph.D. program or a research/development career in industry in the field of Computer Science. Students in the MSCS program can choose to do a Master’s Thesis, Master’s Project, or coursework-only. The MSCS degree does not offer specializations, and MSCS students are not allowed to apply CS Professional courses toward graduation. There is no master’s comprehensive exam. A full-time student whose bachelor degree was in computer science can complete the MSCS program in four semesters or in three semesters plus two summer semesters. A student without a bachelor's degree in computer science may require extra time to make up deficiencies in prerequisite undergraduate coursework Graduate CS classes are offered during the day and evening, and both day-only and evening-only student schedules can be accommodated. Students can complete an MSCS through IIT Online: Classes can be taken entirely through on-demand Internet, without ever visiting the IIT campus. In general, for admission into the MSCS program, prospective students need a bachelor's degree (not necessarily in computer science) and are required to submit a transcript, GRE and possibly TOEFL scores.
