A Bachelors degree in CS is expected. Applicants must have a proven record of excellence as an undergraduate grader/TA in a computer science course. Experience as an undergraduate researcher is highly recommended.
February 1st we will begin reviewing applications for a Fall Semester start. Once all positions have been filled, we will stop considering new applications. An application consists of (a) transcripts of all college-level work, (b) three letters of recommendation including at least one that addresses expository skills and the ability to work in a classroom setting, and (c) an essay that explains how the degree program and the anticipated thesis area resonates with your career plans. GRE scores are optional. Lack of GRE scores will not harm an applicant's chances. Non-native English speakers are required to take the TOEFL or IELTS. TOEFL Scores on the Writing, Listening, and Reading components must be 24 or higher and 28 or higher for the Speaking component. IELTS scores must be 7.0 or higher.
