MS bridge test CS@CU MS Bridge Program in Computer Science


The CS@CU MS Bridge Program in Computer Science offers prospective applicants from non-computer science backgrounds, and those without programming experience, the opportunity to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to build careers in technology.

The program is designed as a year of rigorous “bridge” coursework composed of introductory computer science courses. This transition prepares students for a seamless entrance into Columbia Engineering’s MS program in Computer Science after the bridge year.
