Master of Science in Computer Science
Rutgers University-Camden offers an master's program in computer science with a concentration in scientific computing. It is designed to prepare students for careers in data-intensive science, engineering, or finance fields. The program provides a strong foundation in algorithms and programming relevant to current and emerging computational applications.
Through rigorous coursework and an optional project or thesis, students will:
- develop theoretical understanding and practical skills to tackle diverse computational problems in industry and academia, such as big-data analytics, modeling proteins for drug discovery, mining massive internet transaction datasets for business decision support systems, and forecasting ecosystem behavior for sustainable management
- be prepared for career opportunities in companies and organizations where scientific computing and data science play an important enabling role, for example, in biotechnology, telecommunications, finance, and scientific research
The program also aims to provide graduates with a strong foundation in theory and algorithms to pursue further educational opportunities in Ph.D. programs in science and engineering at leading academic institutions in the United States and internationally.
