Master of Science in Computer Science

Multimedia and Creative Technologies

The Master of Science in Computer Science (Multimedia & Creative Technologies) is a systems oriented specialization, allowing students to choose from a track in graphics and vision or networks and databases.

Computer science courses that are cross-listed with EE can (but do not have to) count toward the 18 EE units. Up to nine units of other CSCI courses that either are or are not cross-listed can also be used. Multimedia and creative technologies draws heavily on concepts and techniques from computer science.
