Is the MCIT the same as a master’s degree in computer science?

The MCIT is not a master of science degree, but it covers comparable material. Our curriculum begins with a strong CS foundation and goes on to graduate-level electives that are exactly the same as those taken by students in traditional CS master’s programs.

 Our graduates’ career outcome results are comparable to those of Penn’s traditional master’s in CS in terms of the types of companies, starting salary, and other compensation. See Penn’s most recent Career Services reports for details.
