The Department of Computer Science offers two terminal graduate degree options, including a Professional Master of Computer Science and a Professional Master of Data Science. These degrees are intended for students who plan to pursue a technical career in the computer industry or in data science. Each of our two programs offers an option of an on-campus program or an in-person program.
Past graduates occupy positions at many top technology companies, including Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle, Cisco, and IBM. Professional masters students join a lively and invigorating community of scholars in the largest academic department at Rice University.
