Applications are now being accepted for spring 2018 admissions. Complete applications should be submitted prior to the October 1. 2017 deadline. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered unless previous permission from the CS MEng Program office has been received. 

The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) program in Computer Science is a two-semester professional degree program designed to enhance practical skills. It roughly involves six courses and a project.

Flexible requirements make it possible to realize a broad range of CS-related career possibilities.  The program is energized by the diversity of research within the department and across the campus. If you majored in CS or a related field as an undergraduate, then the program can be used to deepen your technical expertise. The program also works for those students who "minored" in CS and who wish to push the computing envelope in their undergraduate field of study, e.g., chemistry, civil engineering, sociology, etc. Students with entrepreneurial ambitions can take specially designed courses from the Johnson Graduate School of Management. They can also develop projects that respond to IT-needs that surface all over campus. Students who have limited or no formal CS coursework should review our pre-requisite information available here and make sure they have met those requirements before applying.

An M.Eng in computer science is also available at Cornell Tech in New York City. The program incorporates both technical and business classes and focuses on entrepreneurial thinking.  Students work in interdisciplinary teams on company projects in the fall semester and startup projects in the spring semester.  For more information on the programs offered at Cornell Tech and the admission process, please visit tech.cornell.edu

The Department of Computer Science also offers a two year Master of Science Program. If you are interested in a research Masters degree, please visit the informational pages on the MS in CS.
