New: Computer Science MS Courses Now Available via Distance Education Worldwide

The Computer Science Department at Maharishi University of Management now also offers the courses of our Master's degree level Computer Science program by Distance Education (DE), making them available to anyone worldwide. These courses are a good way to update or broaden your knowledge of current and most up-to-date topics in computing.

Individual courses can be started at the beginning of any session--typically in July, November, and March. All courses combine multiple streams of information and instruction, including online videos of the CS classes, course web-sites and materials, discussion groups for each class, with faculty support through both online and email communications.

If you are just interested in taking one or two courses to upgrade or learn a particular area of computing or IT knowledge, or you are thinking of doing the whole degree (either by DE when available in the future, or by coming on campus) but want to try a course or two first, then you can apply below.

If you have any questions, please send email to csde@mum.edu.
