Evening Program Begun for Computer Science Master’s Degree

December 1, 2010

Working computer engineers, computer scientists and software engineers who want to increase their knowledge and enhance their career opportunities can now earn a master’s degree completely through evening and web-based courses provided by the Computer Science & Engineering Department at The University of Texas at Arlington. Students can concentrate their efforts in one of three areas of study: software engineering, database and information technology, and computer networks and security.

“The Evening Master’s Program aims to meet individuals’ needs and advance the technological workforce in the D/FW area,” said Mike O’Dell, who is directing the program. “It offers working professionals the opportunity to pursue a master's degree without interrupting their workplace obligations.”

The evening courses will be open to both full-time and part-time students. Admitted students can choose either the thesis option (eight courses plus one thesis course) or the non-thesis option (12 courses). Successful completion of the program will result in a Master of Science in Computer Science, Master of Science in Computer Engineering, or a Master of Software Engineering depending on the individual student’s program of work. O’Dell estimates that it will take full-time students between two and three years to complete the degree program; longer for part-time students. Materials covered in the evening courses will be identical to that presented during day courses.”

Additional information on the Evening Master’s Program, including course schedules, estimated costs, admission requirements, etc., is available on the Computer Science & Engineering Department’s web site.
