Master in Computer Science


Program Description

Two yearsIcon

This program is taught in ENGLISH. The Master Degree Program in Computer Science is designed for those who desire to deepen their comprehension of all aspects of the computer sciences. Applicants could be graduates from other degrees with a strong mathematical core, or those continuing their academic pursuit after achieving a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.


Year 1

Students who begin the Master in Computer Science Degree already have a good foundation in programming and mathematics including data structures and algorithms, statistics and machine learning. During the first year, their knowledge of mathematics, programming and data analysis will be significantly extended. The program also offers the opportunity to learn the key soft skills for the professional world including technical project management, writing and presenting.First-year students are expected to attend many of the talks and workshops offered by the university and being work on the capstone project.

A Harbour.Space major requirement for all students in tech is a very good level of math. Anyone who lacks the strong math foundation they need for a career in tech, but is eager to learn has a home in our foundation course (link). Students acquire all the basic tools they need to continue studies in Computer Science, Data Science or Cyber Security. Graduating from MSL means opening the doors to apply for a place at Harbour.Space University and any other top-rated tech university in the world.
