Are you hungry for new knowledge? Worried about where to go, what to study, how to pay for it? Take a look at Baylor Computer Science. Our Master of Science degree program offers students hands-on training in software systems development, including working closely with a faculty member on a thesis or project. Some current work includes:

  • Aspect-oriented software development
  • Automatic integration of Big Data tools
  • Big Data query processing
  • Biological network modeling and analysis
  • Cryptocurrency and multicurrency
  • Developing tools towards fake news detection
  • Functional genomics and computational systems biology
  • Gate-level simulation of digital circuits — performance improvements
  • Geometric accelerations for unsupervised learning methods
  • Gesture-based interaction — for people with usability concerns
  • Identifying symptoms of pediatric ocular cancer in digital images
  • Internet of Things (IoT) security
  • Learning to identify literary criticism in secondary texts
  • Microservice architecture design
  • P2P (Peer-to-peer) protocol incentive systems
  • P2P storage systems
  • Semantic analytics of genomic data
  • Sentiment detection from social media
  • Symmetric boolean functions — detection and exploitation

We are now welcoming applications to the Ph.D. program in Computer Science as well.

More information about our graduate programs are available here: M.S.C.S and Ph.D. in Computer Science. The majority of our graduate students receive full-tuition scholarships, and many teaching and research assistantships are available that include stipends to cover living costs. More information about our scholarships and stipends is available online.
