 SCHOOL OF COMPUTING AND INFORMATION SCIENCE

The School of Computing and Information Sciences was formed in 1987 from the former Department of Mathematical Sciences. The mission of the School has several dimensions, consistent with the overall mission of the University and consistent with its role as part of the College of Engineering and Computing. To offer graduate degree programs leading to both the MS and PhD degrees. The MS program provides professionals now working in the field to update their knowledge and skills, as well as providing traditional students the opportunity to increase their abilities, knowledge, and value to future employers. The PhD program will prepare students for research and teaching at universities and/or to conduct basic and applied research in industry or government agencies. Because of a national shortage of PhD level researchers and faculty in Computer Science, the recent development of the PhD program in Computer Science provides the responsibility as well as the opportunity to make an especially significant contribution.
