NOTE: For classes starting in Spring 2020, we are accepting applications for our new Master of Engineering (MEng) track at the Northern Virginia campus until November 15, 2019. Since the MEng degree has not yet been officially approved, applicants will need to apply to the MS track, and will be moved to the MEng track near the beginning of the Spring 2020 semester.
The graduate program in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech is on its way to becoming one of the top programs in the country. The resources and facilities for research areas such as human-computer interaction, bioinformatics, creative arts, and high-end computing are state of the art, and our growing list of active research areas provides opportunities for students to concentrate their research and study on the specific aspects of computer science in which they are most interested. Or you can do pioneering work at the intersection of multiple disciplines, as our faculty work with outside researchers across nearly every field. At Virginia Tech, students receive firsthand instruction by award-winning faculty who have helped to define today's computer industry. Explore the links on the right to learn more about our graduate program.
The CS Department spans the Blacksburg campus and our facilities in Northern Virginia. Research track (MS/PhD) students may apply to either campus, and many switch between the two depending on their research interests. The MEng program is primarily (but not exclusively) at the Northern Virginia campus.
