Abstract: 

We’re on year three of Georgia Tech's online Master of Science in Computer Science (which shall be referred to as the OMS CS even though there is no distinction between the on-campus and online degrees). The OMS CS was intended to greatly expand access to elite computing education through both its delivery mechanism and greatly reduced price of less than $7,000 for most students.

In this talk, Charles will provide a short overview of the program—from conception to execution—and share some of the lessons we have learned; the implications of this instructional model for universities, students, and employers; and talk about where the program is going. There will be plenty of time for conversation and questions, so come with questions and join the conversation.

If you have questions, please contact Amanda Madden in C21U via email amadden@cc.gatech.edu.
