Applied Computing Concentration

Applied computing is offered as a concentration within the professional science master's program in Camden under Business and Science 137. This program is tailored to students that are interested in a more applied program than the traditional master of science degree program in computer science. This concentration is also suitable for working professionals that have some kind of scientific training and want to improve their computational skills, but feel they do not qualify to apply to the master of science program because their undergraduate degree is not in computer science. The target candidate for this program is someone with a science or engineering background, seeking professional training in computing skills that are most applicable in industry. An undergraduate degree in computer science is not a requirement to apply to the program.

All students in the applied computing concentration must take four required courses and four electives. Students without a sufficient computer science background will be required to take the following courses (these do not count toward degree credit):

56:198:500  Introduction to Programming for Computational Scientists (3)
56:198:501  Introduction to Algorithms for Computational Scientists (3)

Core Courses: Required (all students):
56:198:510  Applied Algorithm Engineering (3)

Choose at least one core course from each of the following areas:

Data Management:

56:198:551  Database Systems (3)
56:198:552  Information Retrieval (3)

56:198:575  Cryptography and Computer Security (3)
56:198:548  Security in Mobile Computing (3)

Computer Networks:
56:198:546  Computer Networks (3)
56:198:549  Network Coding (3)

Electives: Choose any three or four graduate-level computer science courses  to complete 24 credits. See for course listings.

Full course descriptions can be found under the respective graduate program entries in this catalog, or the professional science master's website:
