Full Sail University to Expand Emerging Technology Offerings with Launch of Computer Science Graduate Degree Program
Students can graduate from the accelerated Masters in Computer Science program in as little as 12 months
WINTER PARK, Florida., May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Full Sail University is proud to announce that it will expand its course offerings in emerging technologies with the launch of the Master of Computer Science program. Students in the degree program will have the opportunity to advance their computer knowledge and practical skills to prepare for further careers in a variety of industries.
Students can complete the accelerated online graduate program in as little as 12 months. During students’ time in the Computer Science graduate program, they will learn a plethora of applicable skills, including advanced programming, graduate-level research, critical thinking, and using computer science knowledge to create effective solutions. for machine learning, data science, etc.
“Being able to participate in training the next generation of software developers is humbling for me,” said Rebecca Leis, Ph.D., Full Sail University Program Director of the Computer Science Graduate Program. “With the direction the world is taking, emerging technologies are becoming increasingly important and it is necessary to have a deep understanding of these types of technologies to innovate and advance effectively and quickly. Through this degree program, our students will be able to contribute to the world in a meaningful way.”
The main areas of focus of the MSc in Computer Science program are advanced artificial intelligence, machine learning, data science, and human-computer interaction. These highly sought after industry skills will help Full Sail graduates stand out in a hiring pool. The courses listed below are some examples of these focus areas integrated into the curricula.
Advanced Artificial Intelligence – The course teaches students techniques for designing and creating algorithms and approaches to creating intelligent agents to achieve goals. The course covers a variety of AI topics, including reasoning, knowledge representation, planning, expert systems, and cognitive science. Students will apply these techniques to create knowledge-based artificial intelligence agents.
Machine Learning – The course covers topics for building software solutions that learn via data provided. This includes supervised and unsupervised statistical learning methods, Bayesian learning methods, and reinforcement learning. Students will apply these techniques to create their own machine learning solutions.
Data Science – The course covers topics on processes, algorithms, and tools for extracting knowledge from structured and unstructured data. This includes topics such as data preparation, statistical data evaluation, and data representation. Students will create their own solutions for breaking large amounts of data into usable information.
Human-Computer Interaction – The course shows students how to use qualitative and quantitative research techniques to assess human behavior. Using the information presented, students will research related topics and design a product to visualize data in extended reality. Students will also design a usability study to test the product during development.
Career opportunities include those in artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, software engineering, computer vision, data science, data management, research, cognitive science, and more.
