The Computer Science Graduate Level Minor (CS minor) is an option available for graduate students. A student with a CS minor should be able to apply computational approaches to his/her major area of research. Computational thinking, computer programming and data processing are valuable skills to improve the student’s research productivity and job prospects.
The CS Minor program requires as prerequisites:
- Experience with high-level computer programming (e.g. C/C++, Java, C#, Perl, Python etc.)
- Knowledge of Data Structures and Algorithms (CSCE 310 or CSCE 311 or equivalent)
Masters (MS) students are required to complete graduate-level (800/900) CSCE courses for 9 credit hours. All applicable forms and deadlines apply, and can be filed with the Office of Graduate Studies.
Doctoral (PhD) students are required to complete graduate-level (800/900) CSCE courses for 15 credit hours, including a minimum of 6 credit hours of 900-level courses. PhD students must have their CS minor advisor on their supervisory committees. All applicable forms and deadlines apply, and can be filed with the Office of Graduate Studies.
Students pursuing a CS minor are also required to have a CS minor advisor. The CS minor advisor should be a graduate faculty member in the CSE department.
