The College of Science, Engineering and Technology is a dynamic school. It has been, and remains, a major force for change within the University as an innovator and initiator of most of the high demand and high technological programs on campus.

Master of Science in Computer Science

Rasha Morsi, Ph.D. (Traditional Program) (Accelerated Online Program)
(757) 823-9448

The Master of Science degree in Computer Science requires 30 graduate credit hours of course work and a thesis (6 credits), or 33 graduate credit hours of course work and a project (3 credits). The program offers four choices of study: general study in computer science, emphasis in information assurance, emphasis in computational science and engineering, and emphasis in communication networks.

The Master of Science degree is also offered as an accelerated online program that can be completed in as few as 12 months at a reduced rate.

Master of Science in CYBERSECURITY

Mary Ann Hoppa, Ph.D.
(757) 823-8654

The Master of Science in Cybersecurity (MS.CYB) program seeks to empower graduates from multidisciplinary fields with the knowledge and skills to realize their full potential as next generation technical and organizational leaders in the ongoing war against cyber crime and cyber terrorism.

M.S. in Materials Science

Sam-Shajing Sun, Ph.D.
(757) 823-2993

The Master of Science in Materials Science is an interdisciplinary program administered cooperatively by the physics, chemistry, and engineering graduate faculty. Persons holding baccalaureate degrees in chemistry, engineering, materials science, physics, or related disciplines are eligible for admission. The program is designed to provide the knowledge, analytical skills, and research experience necessary to prepared students for technical jobs and doctoral degree programs in the interdisciplinary field of Materials Science. 

Master of Public Health

Stephen Nkansah-Amankra, Ph.D., MPH
MPH Program Director 

The Master of Public Health Program educates students to apply evidence-based public health approaches that prevent injury and disease to support the delivery of health services. The program provides students with an understanding of public health and health equity in relation to analysis and interventions aimed at protecting and improving the health of all individuals and communities. Students learn how to formulate research questions based on social and behavioral models, design studies, and collect data. Students learn to analyze and interpret health data and information (e.g., reports, academic research, and the design of health promotion activities) for public health officers and managers to improve programs, policies, and services.
