Our Admissions Team Is Looking for Tomorrow’s Innovators
Case Western Reserve University’s Case School of Engineering seeks candidates who want to learn how to apply fundamental computer science skills and techniques to solve some of the world’s most pressing challenges. We designed our admissions process and application requirements to identify applicants who can become the computer science innovators of the future.
Is This Program Right for You?
We challenge students to apply foundational computer science theories to answer the problems of today. Whether you are trying to secure a more senior CS role or pivot into the field, Case Western Reserve’s online MS in Computer Science (MSCS) can prepare you for the cutting-edge career you want.
With two program tracks that support students with intermediate and advanced computer science knowledge, the online MSCS offers a customizable learning environment for students interested in maintaining a full-time career while pursuing a technical degree.
Understanding Our Online MSCS Tracks
We designed the pathways track for mid-level professionals with a strong STEM background looking to transition into computer science. Students who thrive in this track will have completed the following:
- A bachelor’s degree.
- A college-level calculus course.
- An introductory course in object-oriented programming.
The advanced track provides those who already have a strong computer science foundation with opportunities for upward mobility. Successful candidates for this track should have completed a bachelor’s degree and all prerequisite coursework. This means that while a computer science or programming degree is not required, competitive applicants will have significant computer science experience. You will build upon your existing theoretical foundation to delve into specialized topics in computer science and emerging technologies.
Please note that both tracks aim for excellence in the world of computer science. To succeed in this program, you should be prepared to engage with advanced technical concepts and embrace the theoretical foundations that underpin the field.
