Suggestions for Applicants Without a CS Degree

Although we do not require applicants to our computer science programs to have a degree in computer science, we do expect them to have a strong technical background equivalent to a computer science bachelors degree. Admission to these programs requires experience in programming, algorithms, data structures, and theory at or above the undergraduate level.
