    MSc Computer Science - distance or online / Leicester and ???

    I've been searching for master of science program in computer science that can be done entirely online or by distance and examinations. The other requirements are that it has to be affordable (around $15,000 USD or less) and will admit students who did not get an undergrad in Computer Science and will accept industry experience.

    So far I've only found Leicester to meet these criteria. There are other programs in IT management but I'm more interested in getting a non-management degree as I will (hopefully) soon complete my MBA with Heriot-Watt.

    Georgia Tech sprang immediately to mind, and they're in the 7K range.

    Preferred qualifications for admitted OMS CS students are an undergraduate degree in computer science or related field (typically mathematics, computer engineering or electrical engineering ) from an accredited institution with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Applicants who do not meet these criteria will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, however work experience will not take the place of an undergraduate degree. The following are required for admission:

    Evidence of award of a 4-year bachelor's degree or its equivalent (prior to matriculation) from a recognized institution, demonstrated academic excellence and evidence of preparation in their chosen field sufficient to ensure successful graduate study

    For international applicants, satisfactory scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)

    Please note: Applicants who meet the minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission. Successful applicants will first be conditionally admitted into the degree program and must pass their first two OMS CS foundational courses with a grade of B or better to be fully admitted. Students do not need to take these foundational courses before registering for elective courses.

    Doesn't Northcentral University Accredited Online University & Graduate Degree Programs | Northcentral University in the Great State of Arizona offer an online MS/MBA in Applied Computer Science ? I'm pretty sure they still offer the PhD/DBA in Applied Computer Science .

    I heard that Georgia Tech OMCS program is really competitive for the admission. You might want to check out University of West Florida and University of Illinois at Springfield, both schools offer less than $12,000.00. In term of non- computer science for undergraduate you might have to take several perquisites. This is the norm for cross major, such as from engineering to business; which you have to take introductory to business, accounting , finance, marketing , and etc. as foundation.

    Hertfordshire looks interesting. Does anyone know what its reputation is? It doesn't look like it's a Royal Charter like other UK universities.

    it's 'recognized' by the uk Gov.

    Hertfordshire is one of the 'new' universities that was created back in the 90s. it was formerly a polytechnic and they 'converted' to become a University.

    Not new but captech is just little overbudget for you, around $17.5k. The thing i like was only 10 courses which look quite impressive, https://www.captechu.edu/academics/g...e-requirements

    I've applied to Georgia Tech's OMSCS program. There's a good community on G+ that can answer a lot of questions.

    Congrats, good decision and good luck- It is a top ranked university indeed.
    Interesting comparison in MS-SE and MS-CS degrees, i guess the only difference looks like the entry requirements.

    Just an update. I've completed my first 30 credits (of 180) for the program. What I can say is that it takes a lot of discipline to do the courses. There's a guided study path but there's not a lot of "teaching ". Dispite being a "taught" program, some courses will need you to do a lot of research and additional reading in order to complete assignments. Course work assessments vary from online tests, to presentations, to video app demos (ones you wrote), etc.. It's a challenge if you are working fulltime to find time to catch up on reading and complete assignments.

    Hope this helps anyone looking at University of Hertfordshire.
