Applications are now being accepted for fall 2017 admission. The deadline for applications is February 1, 2017. Applications received after the deadline will not be processed except with prior consent by the CS MEng Program Office. We will begin processing fall 2017 applications after the February 1st deadline and hope to have decisions made and offers sent out by the beginning of April.

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.

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 theprograms offered at Cornell Tech and the admission process, please visit

The Department of Computer Science also administers a very small 2-year Master of Science program (with thesis). Students in this program serve as teaching assistants and receive full tuition plus a stipend for their services.
