Students can complete the accelerated online graduate-level degree program in as little as 12 months. During student’s time in the Computer Science graduate degree program, they will garner a plethora of applicable skills including advanced programming, graduate-level research, critical thinking, and utilizing computing knowledge to create effective solutions for machine learning, data science, and more.
“Being able to take part in educating the next generation of software developers is a humbling experience for me,” stated Rebecca Leis, Ph.D., Full Sail University program director of the Computer Science graduate degree program. “With the direction the world is going, there is a growing importance to emerging technologies and having a deep understanding of these types of technologies is necessary to innovate and move forward efficiently and quickly. Through this degree program, our students will be able to contribute to the world in a significant way.”
The primary areas of focus within the Computer Science Master of Science degree program are advanced artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science and human-computer interaction. These highly sought-after skills in the industry will help Full Sail graduates stand out in a hiring pool. The courses listed below are a few examples of these focus areas incorporated in the degree program curricula.
- Advanced Artificial Intelligence – The course teaches students techniques for designing and creating algorithms and approaches to create intelligent agents to achieve goals. The course covers a variety of AI topics, including reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, expert systems and cognitive sciences. Students will apply these techniques to create knowledge-based artificial intelligence agents.
- Machine Learning – The course covers topics for the creation of software solutions that learn via provided data. This includes statistical supervised and unsupervised learning methods, Bayesian learning methods and reinforcement learning. Students will apply these techniques to create their own machine learning solutions.
- Data Science – The course covers topics for processes, algorithms, and tools to extract knowledge from structured and unstructured data. This includes topics such as data preparation, statistical evaluation of data, and representation of data. Students will create their own solutions to break down large amounts of data into usable information.
- Human-Computer Interaction – The course shows students how to use qualitative and quantitative research techniques for evaluating human behavior. Using the information presented, students will research related topics and design a product aimed at visualizing data in extended reality. Students will also design a usability study to test the product during development.
Career outcome possibilities include ones in artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, software engineering, computer vision, data science, data management, research, cognitive sciences, and more.
