University of Tennessee, Knoxville Expands Relationship with Noodle to Launch Online Masters Degree in Computer Science

Program is First Partnership Between Tickle College of Engineering and Noodle

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. and NEW YORK, June 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UT) launched its Online Masters in Computer Science (MSCS) degree program, which is currently accepting applications for a fall 2022 start. The program was built in partnership with Noodle, the country's fastest-growing online learning network.

The online MSCS is the first partnership between UT's Tickle College of Engineering and Noodle. The program features specialized computer science training led by some of technology's top practitioners in the Min H. Kao Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS). This includes Jack Dongarra, the Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at UT who received the 2021 Association of Computing Machinery Alan M. Turing Award, often referred to as the Nobel Prize of computing, for his groundbreaking contributions to high-performance computing.

The online MS in computer science offers the network connections, program concentrations, and critical thinking skills students need to lead the field forward. Inspired by industry trends and innovative research, the curriculum introduces and emphasizes emerging areas of computer science that elevate skills and knowledge to exceed industry standards.

"The online master's program features three different areas of concentration, allowing students the ability to focus on the topics they find most important or interesting to them," said Greg Peterson, professor and EECS department head. "Moreover, we provide flexibility for which courses to take within each concentration so each student can craft their own, unique course of study. Our faculty includes widely recognized technology leaders, helping students to learn about the most advanced computing topics."

The online MSCS expands on UT's existing portfolio of more than ten degree programs launched in collaboration with Noodle, including the Executive MBA for Global Supply Chain, the Online Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (SCM), the Online Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Programs, and the Online Master of Public Health.
