The Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) is an advanced research degree. It is a STEM-related program. A thesis and a final exam (thesis defence) are the requirements. Students who have completed the MSCS degree can file an intent letter to request admittance to the PhD program.
The student is required to select the chair of an advisory panel from the graduate faculty. If a student would like to choose a chair that is not appointed to the department, the committee should include two co-chairs, with one who is part of the department’s graduate faculty (a committee is comprised of either two chairs or one chair).
This advisory panel for the MSCS degree comprises at least three Texas A&M graduate faculty (the chair counts as an individual member). It must include at minimum one member from a different department, and it must be a majority of the department. The chair and the student collaborate to choose the rest on the advisory panel. It is important to note that all faculty members with joint appointments within the department will count as faculty from the department in determining committee members. Faculty with the courtesy appointment will be considered non-members in the group. The graduate advising office may give information about which faculty have joint meetings.
