The MCS program is more focused on the mathematical aspects of computing and less on systems, databases, etc. It is similar to the ACO programs at CMU and Georgia Tech.
We recently updated our website, where you can learn more about the program and the affiliated faculty. More importantly, if you're a student looking to get a Ph.D. in a mathematical area of computing, consider applying to our program -- we're looking for strong applicants.
