Program | Faculty | Master's | Doctoral | Courses

A student must pass four core courses with a grade of B or better during the first four semesters. The core courses must include one course from systems, one from theory (normally CMPSCI 601 or 611) and one from Artificial Intelligence (AI), (normally CMPSCI 683). The fourth core course is chosen from a rich set of regular core course offerings. Students who took equivalent courses at other institutions can arrange to substitute other CMPSCI offerings as core courses. Thirty credits must be completed within three calendar years. A Master’s Project must also be completed.
