Program Description

Professional Science Master in Computational Science

University of Central Oklahoma

STEM+Business

UCO's Professional Science Master's in Computational Science combines graduate coursework in a chosen STEM major and management, along with an experiential capstone project, to produce graduates that are prepared to perform advanced computational analysis and manage projects in professional environments. Most of the management courses are part of UCO's Master in Business Administration (MBA) MBA Program.

The PSM at UCO is part of the College of Mathematics and Science (CMS) Center for Research and Education in Interdisciplinary Computation (CREIC).

Developed with Industry Input

In developing this program we met with and listened to Oklahoma City (OKC) industry leaders about what they need in advanced STEM workforce. As a result, the program has a strong management component.

No Thesis Required

This program is not a traditional M.S. degree. Rather than a research thesis PSM students gain real-world experience in their capstone projects. These may be current issues in the student's place of employment or in other metropolitan OKC industry.

Flexibility and Convenience

The PSM is flexible due to the student's ability to select courses in their major area of interest. The student also chooses their project topic with the approval of the program coordinator.

The convenience of the program is that classes are offered in the late afternoons and evenings so that working professionals may attend. Many classes meet at UCO downtown in Downtown OKC.

PSM Computational Science Objectives

The Program Objectives (PO’s) of the Professional Science Master’s are to prepare science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) graduate students at UCO to:

PO1) Increase competitiveness in advancing their professional career.

PO2) Become experts in the workplace at applying computational techniques to their discipline.

PO3) Lead efforts to meet workplace goals using data, quantitative techniques, and business analytics.

PO4) Serve as a technical resource for communication to advance collaboration between disciplines in their organization.

PSM Majors

Student's specialize in an area of interest or major.
