The Center for Advanced Computer Studies (CACS) is the research arm of the School of Computing and Informatics. The Center provides quality, cutting-edge educational and research experiences at the master’s and doctoral levels. The Center offers graduate degrees in both computer science and computer engineering.
We offer the following graduate degrees:
- Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS)
- Master of Science in Computer Engineering (MSCE)
- Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science (PhdCS)
- Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Engineering (PhdCE)
The Center aims to provide students with strong conceptual foundations (theoretical and experimental), and also to expose students to the forefront of the developments in the field of computing. Recognizing the applicability of computing to all fields of knowledge and practice, the Center provides a variety of degrees and programs at both graduate degree levels. The Center also cooperates with other units of the University to provide interdisciplinary degree programs.
Throughout the years, CACS graduates have been placed across the world and enjoy a high degree of success in their careers. They have been very active in both academia and industry, contributing in innovative and groundbreaking ways.
