The CSE Department at UB is one of the first Computer Science degree programs in the world; and with more than 35 full-time faculty members and over 850 graduate and undergraduate students, it is also one of the largest. Our graduate program offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science, and consistently ranks among top 60 best programs in the United States. Our distinguished faculty perform world-class research in theory, software, and hardware, and are recipients of numerous awards. Our graduates are highly sought after by both academia and industry.
To apply to the CSE graduate program, you should submit an online application with a processing fee and supporting materials. The online application system becomes available on September 1st and closes on December 31st every year for admission to the following fall semester.
Although an undergraduate degree (bachelor's or four-year equivalent) is required for admission, an undergraduate degree in computer science or engineering is not required.
Applicants are expected to have successfully completed coursework in computer science and math or logic equivalent to the following:
Applicants missing this coursework can still be admitted to the program, but they would need to take additional coursework. You can find descriptions of the courses cited above on our undergraduate academics website: http://www.cse.buffalo.edu/undergrad/courses.php.
