Graduate Minor in Computer Science

CCI's new Graduate Minor in Computer Science allows Drexel students from all backgrounds to obtain fundamental computer science knowledge as well as an introduction to advanced topics in computer science that will be suitable for their own graduate studies. The program is offered to current Drexel graduate students outside of the Computer Science Department.

The minor is designed to provide the basic knowledge necessary not only for success in higher-level graduate computer science courses, but also for using, understanding, and building software systems in any discipline. It does not provide training in field-specific software tools or algorithms, but in the principles underlying all computation.

Program Features

  • Designed for non-computer science Drexel graduate students to gain fundamental theory and programming knowledge in computer science through three core courses
  • Students may choose from two elective courses from the Master of Science in Computer Science core candidate courses, allowing a flexible platform for students to expand their studies beyond the core, foundational computer science courses
  • Can be completed in a minimum of three quarters
