Computer Science (M.S. or M.Eng.) – Online

Global skills. Global network. Personal support.

To push the boundaries of what’s possible in the computing world, you need to proficiently develop skills and concepts that can be applied to any industry and help you attain the highest levels of career success. Backed by a community-centric approach to learning, you can achieve these goals by earning a Master of Engineering in Computer Science or a Master of Science in Computer Science online with Oregon State University.

Both the M.Eng. and M.S. programs will provide you with access to cutting-edge coursework online, the most advanced skills in computer science, and Oregon State faculty with real-world work experience and expertise. This combination of factors will position you to move up — and lead — in the field of computer science.

A small community with a large impact

As an Oregon State computer science master’s student, you’ll receive one-on-one support not only from your instructors but also from program advisors and administrators. This level of personalized support is enhanced by a connected cohort of students in the program, meaning you’ll learn alongside and build close connections with a worldwide community of computer science professionals.

Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)

The Master of Engineering program features innovative coursework that will enable you to gain advanced skills in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, cybersecurity, machine learning and more. Unlike the Master of Science program, the M.Eng. requires you to take only courses to earn a degree.

Master of Science (M.S.)

Not only does the Master of Science program deliver the same cutting-edge curriculum as the M.Eng., but it also provides a layer of hands-on work through a project that you’ll design in close collaboration with an expert OSU faculty member.
