Remarks from Recent Graduates

The MS program in Computer Science allows you to work with professors who are as passionate about helping their students to learn as they are about the graduate-level topics that they teach. − K. Dittmar, Rowan B.S./M.S. C.S. '16

The Computer Science department at Rowan University offered not only mastery in course- work alone, but also real life instances to tackle from local and global companies. − C. White, Rowan M.S. C.S. '14

Rowan offered a good number of their graduate level courses in the evening to accommodate the working student, and being that most courses were offered one evening a week, I would not have to commute to campus multiple times. This allowed me to keep a good balance between work, school and life. - K. Palazzo, Rowan M.S. C.S. '13

The accelerated BS/MS program gave me the experience needed to succeed professionally. The faculty members are eager to help in any way possible and enjoy sharing their expertise with students. − D. Taggart, Rowan B.S./M.S. C.S. '14
