Online Degree Overview

In January 2014, the Georgia Institute of Technology, Udacity, and AT&T teamed up to launch the first accredited Master of Science in Computer Science from an accredited university that students can earn exclusively through the "massive online" format and for a fraction of the cost of traditional, residential programs.

This collaboration—informally dubbed "OMS CS"—brings together leaders in education, MOOCs, and industry to apply the disruptive power of technology to widen the pipeline of high-quality, educated talent needed in computer science fields.

In five years, the program has received over 25,000 applications and enrolled nearly 9,000 students, all of whom are working toward the same rigorous Georgia Tech M.S. in Computer Science as their on-campus counterparts.

Beyond the grades and diplomas, the program has also created a worldwide community of computing professionals who not only collaborate in their courses, but also form professional networks, share job opportunities, make in-person connections, and support each other in both their studies and their careers.

Whether you are a current or prospective computing student, a working professional, or simply someone who wants to learn more about this revolutionary program, we encourage you to explore the Georgia Tech OMS CS: the best computing education in the world, now available to the world.
