Introduction If you are about to embark on the task of developing a Master's thesis in Computer Science, then this document may be of interest to you. The scope of this document is very narrow and deals only with certain features of thesis development that are unique to the field of Computer Science. Before we get into the heart of the matter, you should ask yourself if you have the background and skills required to successfully complete a thesis in Computer Science. The next section lists some of the skills you will be expected to possess.
Design and maintain large application software Maintain network infrastructure Master basic algorithms and theoretical computer science principles Demonstrate ability in advanced programming and software design materials Our MSCS graduates have found success in a wide range of careers, including: Please contact the graduate admissions office for details.
Electives and Concentrations Any course that appears in a concentration above may count as an elective.
Other courses offered at the graduate level at Northeastern University may be taken as electives provided written permission is given by your faculty advisor and approval is obtained from the Graduate Committee. Elective authorization petitions are available on the Forms page. Readings and Project Courses Readings and Project courses are four-credit, individual instruction courses a student can take along with a faculty advisor.
These courses allow students to focus more specifically on a topic they are interested in, either through assigned reading material or a project designed by student and advisor.
Requirements for Readings and Project Courses The responsibility of finding a faculty advisor lies with the student. He or she is welcome to talk with faculty to discuss mutual interest in a particular topic and the availability of the faculty member for an individual instruction course.
The primary faculty advisor must have an appointment within the College of Computer and Information Science. The student must have completed at least 16 credit hours of coursework prior to taking one of these courses. These courses do not count towards a concentration.
To register for a CS Readings or CS Project course, please visit the Forms page and complete the required form with the help of your faculty advisor. Thesis course CS Semester One Project Course The student must find a thesis advisor who is willing to commit two semesters to working with the student.
It should be noted on the form that this course is intended to lead into an MS Thesis. The proposal should describe the project, list the official reader sand be signed by the thesis advisor.
A sample MS proposal can be provided upon request to the student by the administration for guidance. An official reader may be chosen from the faculty of the college, from another NU department, or from another institution or the industrial community when appropriate.
Once submitted, the Graduate Committee may accept or reject the proposal, ask for revisions, or ask that additional readers be added to the proposal. Both the merits of the proposal and the academic performance of the student will be considered in deciding whether to accept a proposal for the M.
Semester Two Thesis Course If the proposal is approved, the student will be directed to register for CS the following semester.
Thesis The thesis advisor guides the research topic. The result of the research is to be an original contribution to the field of Computer Science. The thesis should be developed in terms of the current literature and will include a thorough literature search and review.
Emphasis is to be placed upon clear writing, logical development, and significance of the issues. Acceptance of the thesis requires the agreement of the thesis advisor and the reader s.
Thesis defense The student will defend the thesis at a public presentation during the last two weeks of the semester. The defense will be directed by the thesis advisor and the reader s will be in attendance. The thesis defense is open to anyone who wishes to attend.
The candidate will give a lecture on the subject of the thesis and this will be followed by questions from those in attendance concerning the results of the thesis as well as related matters.Thesis Option, 30 hours total: 21 credit hours of elective courses, such that at least 12 credit hours are at the level, and that a maximum of 9 credit hours are in CSC , CSC , and CSC combined.
The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) is designed to prepare students for a variety of careers in computer science.
Masters Thesis. The Master’s thesis option consists of 8 semester hours of research, culminating into an M.S. thesis. This can be accomplished through taking a Project Course CS , followed by an M.S. Thesis. Aug 30, · Computer science PhD amp; Masters thesis.
