Graduate Minor in Computer Science

About the Graduate Minor

The graduate minor in Computer Science trains current Drexel graduate students either in an MS or a PhD program of their home departments (other than the Computer Science Department) 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 aim is to provide a systematic and efficient education to Drexel graduate students interested in expanding their studies through integration of computing including, but not limited to, rigorous algorithmic thinking and effective computational implementation without any prerequisites on computer science knowledge.
