The Department of Computer Science and Engineering offers high quality graduate education in computer science.
Students must select either a thesis or a non-thesis option in their program of study. A student may only select the thesis option if a member of the graduate faculty has agreed to serve as thesis director. Normally the major professor will direct the thesis research. The research must be accepted by his/her Graduate Committee and reported in a defensible thesis paper.
After earning an M.S. degree, some students choose to pursue a Ph.D. degree, either at MSU or elsewhere.
