Kutztown University of Pennsylvania
Master of Science (M.S.) Computer Science
Department of Computer Science
Proposed Start Date: Fall 2012
A Masters of Science in Computer Science through the PSM track will provide students an advantage in competing in the business world.
Many of our Computer Science graduates are hired in the financial services industry. With course work focused on budgeting, accounting, finance and entrepreneurship, students would receive more knowledge of the industry in which they are employed. Although they may have some practical experience, individuals going into entry level (or those promoted to the next level) from a traditional Computer Science program have little to no formal education in theories of management. Courses in human resource management, personnel administration, and management decision making would be very useful to the ‘new’ manager, who may have approached decision making differently, in designing and working with computer systems.
What are the career prospects?
Jobs for graduates of the program can be located in technology specific industries or the IT departments of industries of various types. These jobs include, but are not limited to, project managers, database administrators, network administrators, security managers, and directors of IT departments.
Some prospective or existing industry partners include:
Gateway Ticketing Systems
Information Service Group
Computer Aid Inc.
ReSearch Pharmaceutical Services
Lehigh Valley Hospital
Is the Master of Science (M.S.) Computer Science for me?
This program is a great fit for those with a BS in Computer Science or a related field who wish to expand their knowledge in the area and obtain knowledge and skills in areas related to operating in the business environment. Students with an undergraduate degree in a different field can be accepted conditionally. These students would need to take some undergraduate background courses.
