What our students are saying

I really enjoyed the online masters and computer science program. I would highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a masters degree in computer science.I love being around planes and I love computers and programming. I found the best of both worlds working with an engineering consulting company that specialises in aerospace.

Matt B

Colorado State University
As an international student coming from a non-CS background, I found the MS program to be very useful in making the transition to AI/NLP-centric CS research, a field which is getting more competitive by the day. This was made possible by a very knowledgeable and helpful set of professors that we got to learn from.

Abhijnan N.

As an Indian beginning my first year at Colorado State University's Master of Computer Science program, I'm quite pleased with the quality of instruction here. The courses ensure that we fully comprehend computer science by covering both the fundamentals and the most recent developments.
