Computer Science (M.S.)
Welcome to the Computer Science program at Rutgers-Camden. Our master’s degree program, with a concentration in scientific computing, prepares students for data-intensive careers in science, engineering, or finance. The program offers a strong foundation in algorithms and programming tailored to current and emerging computational applications.
TAKE THE NEXT STEP
The Computer Science program at Rutgers-Camden equips graduates with a solid foundation in theory and algorithms, enabling them to pursue further educational opportunities in Ph.D. programs in science and engineering at leading academic institutions in the U.S. and internationally. With a focus on relevant algorithms and programming, students also acquire the necessary skills for current and emerging computational applications in the industry.
Through rigorous coursework and the option for a project or thesis, students develop both theoretical knowledge and practical abilities to address diverse computational challenges, including:
Modeling proteins for drug discovery
Mining massive internet transaction datasets
Forecasting ecosystem behavior
Program in Action
Professor Michael A. Palis, a computer science professor, secured a $600,000 NSF grant for the STEM Scholars Program, promoting diversity in STEM.
