While great for working professionals, I honestly thought my program was part of a degree mill. If you need a MS to advance your career, this could be a good option for you - but only if your employer is paying for most of it.

One of the pros of the CS graduate program at BU is the supportive faculty I get to work with. One of the cons is there aren't a lot of collaborative work in the department.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I recently began my journey towards a Master's Degree at Boston University's MET College studying Computer Information Science. As a graduate from Virginia Tech's computer science department, I was searching for a way to continue my education without having to quit my job and relocate. Boston University has provided me this opportunity. The online classes are well structured and easy to follow, and the professors are engaged and quick to respond. The coursework is a little heavy, but not overly so. I am able to complete my assignments on time each week with dealing with my projects at work, and I still have time to maintain and social life on the weekends. Additionally, the live online lectures really helps expands the content in the textbook. The seven-week layout of the courses was a little daunting at first. But after my first class, I actually found myself preferring it over the standard 14-week semester. It condenses the class a lot, but it doesn't hinder the ability to learn or retain the information. Overall, I am very pleased with my education at Boston University so far and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to continue their education.

I had to rank items that I did not experience first hand, since I am an online student. I am a student in the Metropolitan College Master's of Computer Information Systems. So far, the program has been incredible. The accelerated pace is rather enjoyable, and the faculty members are top notch. I enjoy the support structure in the courses, and feel as if my success is a priority to all involved in the program.

Excellent academic conditions, with top-tier courses and faculty that is always available. Boston is an expensive city abut Financial Aid is almost always available. Abundant networking and career opportunities.
