The Department of Computer Science offers a master's in Computer Science, a master’s in Cybersecurity in Computer Science, and a graduate certificate in Computer Security and Information Assurance at The George Washington University Virginia Science and Technology Campus. Courses in the graduate certificate program are fully transferable to either master's program. Our faculty members conduct cutting-edge research in a number of areas and applications of computer science and collaborate with other researchers in academia, industry and government. The department emphasizes creative solutions to real-world problems.
This 10-course, 30-credit-hour program allows students to "create their own path." Students are required to take three core courses. An additional seven courses, of the students' choosing within the department (and in special circumstances outside of the department) combine to create an exceptional learning experience.
Like the master's degree in Computer Science, this is also a 10-course, 30-credit-hour program. Students are required to take three computer science core courses and one security course, and to choose four additional security courses from a list of security courses, and have two elective courses they can choose from any technical areas, to create an exceptional learning experience.
This graduate program is a four-course, 12-credit-hour program. It is designed as an alternative to the full master’s program. However, once a student completes the certificate, all four courses can be transferred to the Master of Science in Computer Science.
The George Washington University's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers innovative and cutting edge master's degrees at the Virginia Science and Technology Campus. These graduate degree programs are taught with the same exceptional faculty and quality of service as that of our main campus in Washington, DC. These accelerated graduate programs are catered toward working adult students who find the convenience of weekend and evening courses more suitable for their busy professional lifestyle. Our programs allow students to earn their degree without career interruption while ensuring that information gained at the beginning of the program is not obsolete by the time the student graduates.
Electrical Engineering provides the technological foundation for the modern information society. An MSEE is a powerful credential for today's engineers. The MSEE is a 10-course, 30-credit hour program. Courses are taught in an accelerated cohort format with degree completion in 19 months. A new cohort program begin every January.
Students will learn fundamental principles of telecommunications, computer science and information management and will learn to design local and wide-area networks. The M.S. in TCOMM is a 10- course, 30-credit hour program. Courses are taught in an accelerated cohort format with degree completion in 19 months. A new cohort program begins every January.
The Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering (EMSE) programs are designed to develop leaders for technically-oriented organizations and prepare them for the future. The most sought-after engineering and business professionals today have combined management and technology credentials. In today’s fast paced world of technology-driven changes, the well educated technical professional with a management background is invaluable. Employers seek engineers, scientists and business professionals who can lead the process of change, and who have the ability to apply the power of information technology to the management of their organizations. A group of 25 students is expected to begin in March 2012, with a program completion date of December 2013.
The George Washington University Department of Engineering Management and Systems Engineering, Off-Campus Programs Office (EMSE-OCP), will be launching an accelerated master’s program in Systems Engineering at the Virginia Science and Technology Campus.
The academic discipline of Systems Engineering focuses on innovation in the theories that govern the structure, operation, and management of technical and scientific organizations. The accelerated M.S. degree enables professionals who are employed full-time to pursue master’s level study on weekends in an intense, focused environment alongside like-minded fellow students. This program will begin on September 29, 2012, with a program completion date of May 2014.
This accelerated doctoral program enables professionals who are employed full-time to pursue doctoral study and research in an intense, focused environment alongside like-minded fellow students. A group of 15-20 students will begin study at the Virginia Science and Technology Campus in March 2012 with a target graduation date of May 2015.
