About Stanford University

The very famous Stanford University is a private research university with a high output, located in Stanford, California. Simply, if anyone gets into Stanford, she/he takes it blindly, as the acceptance rate is a mere 4.8% and financial aids are among the most generous ones. To get an idea of exactly how competitive Stanford is, you don’t have to look further than the long list of prominent companies founded by Stanford alumni- Google, Hewlett-Packard, LinkedIn, Yahoo, and Sun Microsystems. And that’s not even one tenth of the list. Also, it ranks #3 according to U.S. News' 'Best Global Universities Ranking' list.

Course Description

The MS degree in Computer Science is intended as a terminal professional degree and does not lead to the Ph.D. degree. Most students planning to obtain the Ph.D. degree should apply directly for admission to the Ph.D. program. Some students, however, may wish to complete the master’s program before deciding whether to pursue the Ph.D. To give such students a greater opportunity to become familiar with research, the department has a program leading to a master’s degree with distinction in research.

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Biocomputation
  • Computer and Network Security
