Undergraduate / Graduate Degree in Computer Science For students just starting with their under graduation or graduation, there are several important considerations to keep in mind when deciding upon a major: available funding, demand for the domain, career opportunities a er graduation and future scope. Most of the international students studying in the United States prefer to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree in computer science as to explore career opportunities in Compute Science. As computer science graduates, international students will have access to hands-on experience in cutting-edge research in one of the best funded academic and industrial sectors in the United States. International students who want to pursue a degree in computer science should consider these points when deciding where to pursue a computer science major or which institution to choose: 1) The reputation of the institution and job placement rate of graduates, 2) The amount of funding/financial assistance that is available to undergraduate student (and international students will also need to confirm that they are eligible for such financial assistance) 3) The specific specialization of the faculty and department to see what type of ongoing research projects are available at the institution. 4) Location (so as to look forward for job opportunities)

Types of Graduate Degrees in Computer Science There are two types of graduate degrees for candidates seeking Master’s Degree in Computer Science. These are: 1. Master of Engineering (ME), which is o en designed for professionals simultaneously working in the field or looking for a job opportunity while or a er pursuing advanced degrees. It is a one year degree course which includes only course work focused on building skills required for a job on same field and no research work. You can opt for this if you want to progress with the corporate market and not much interested into research work. 2. Master of Science (MS): It’s almost a two year degree course which includes course work including practical and theory but focused on research thesis. This degree is preferred more by international students as it is beneficial for career and also if you are thinking for a PhD. https://www.optnation.com/blog/careers-in-computer-science-universities-in-usa/
