What to Expect

It can be hard to adjust back to higher education after functioning in the workforce. That is why we’ve designed this graduate program with working professionals in mind. You’ll get a rigorous education that fits within your busy schedule. All courses will be available online as a self-paced format, but three courses per semester will be offered face to face on campus.

Concentrations / Specializations
Software Engineering

This track focuses on creating systems as problem solving tools. You'll study advanced algorithms, compilers, and programming language theory to prepare you for a career as a software developer with an upward trajectory toward team lead or senior level developer.

Information Systems

This track focuses on applying and managing technology used in problem solving. You'll study advanced networking and system design and administration to prepare you for a career in network infrastructure with an upward trajectory toward network administrator, database administrator, or systems architect.


In addition to our main and online campuses, Concordia has center locations which offer accelerated undergraduate and graduate programs close to where you live and work. The Master of Science in Computer Science program is available at the following:
