Have you looked at the their webpage? Have you seen their program structure, the courses you have to take and the faculty?

Have you discovered what you want to do and see that does either school give you that? Do you want to live in La Jolla or Los Angeles?

After you answer these questions, understand that you should chose the school that has the best fit according to your interests. CS is a growing field and every university is scrambling to pay for the best.

UCSD's CS program has been asked a lot here on Quora so here is a link: How is the computer science program at the UC, San Diego?

For USC, it is seems to be as strong as UCSD Is USC’s Master of Science in CS MS worth its cost?

I hope this helps.

If you’re not passionate about hardware and your talents seem to align with programming, you should definitely switch from CE to CS!

The heyday of hardware was probably about 15–20 years ago, when application specific integrated circuit (ASIC), system-on-chip (SoC), and IC board development were all the rage. Those were the days when Moore’s Law was still going strong. However, today, there are at least three reasons why the industry has moved towards a heavy SW-centric focus:

1) Custom ICs are no longer required, since the industry is awash with powerful commodity CPU/GPU devices that can run just about any application you can imagine with the right set of software code.

2) Moore’s Law is running out of steam. TSMC and Samsung are now manufacturing with 14nm design rules, and both are touting 7nm efforts. With each drop in the lithography, we get closer and closer to atomic scale, at which point, there will be nowhere farther to go. To continue pushing performance, power, and area, the CE industry will have to create more exotic technologies to compete against CMOS.

3) When I started my CE career over 20 years ago, it seemed like all of my peers were in their 20s and 30s. I worried that it was a young man’s job and wondered what that meant for my career moving forward. As I’ve aged, so has the workforce. Most of my peers are now 40+, with a handful in their 30s. Simply put, I don’t see ANY recent college grads doing hardware development… maybe they’re out their in other locations, but I don’t see them.

The hardware industry will always need a set of skilled designers and technologists to continue to innovate, but the lion’s share of jobs now sit squarely in software. Think of Microsoft/Google/Amazon and then compare their workforces to ARM/Nvidia/Qualcomm. Yeah, that’s the disparity between SW and HW.

So firstly, there is an important distinction between the two degrees. The CMU MIIS program is a professional master’s or terminal master’s. The degree is aimed to equip you with the skills required for a job in the industry in that field. The UCSD MSCS program provides a thesis option and also a chance to continue for a PhD.

UCSD MSCS program:

It’s a very good program where you have a lot of flexibility to plan and choose your coursework. They provide a coursework option or a thesis option for graduating. The courses are highly research oriented and the professors are very motivated to do research. There are some amazing professors who have been/are big names in the machine learning community. There are very good opportunities for funding through TA/RA. The only major drawback is that, the department is expanding and has doubled their intake to the program — leading to a bit of hassle when it comes to getting the classes you want, and professors handling larger class sizes.

CMU MIIS program:

(Please note: I am not in the MIIS program. Whatever I know, is from reading the web page/handbook and through my summer internship experience at LTI)

The MIIS program is highly focused on applying machine learning techniques to language technologies. There is a good deal of flexibility wherein you can choose other ML/AI courses, but you do need to fulfil a few specific requirements. The program is a terminal degree. I’ve noticed that people do get to do research under professors. The fees are really high (being a private university) and from what I’ve heard, the funding opportunities for a master’s student is pretty bleak. You’d be taught by some of the best faculty in AI/ML. This being said CMU as a university is a great place to be. There are a lot of talks/seminars and workshops happening everyday by each of the specific departments (machine learning, language technologies, robotics etc.) (even during the summer when I was there!). While UCSD’s CS department is really good and highly underrated, CMU ranks among the top 3. There are lot more resources (being a private university).

I’d suggest you to look into the pros and cons and make a well-informed decision based on your requirements. No one can provide you with a binary answer regarding this decision, thus you must weight the advantages and disadvantages with respect to what you require. Nonetheless, both of these universities are top notch and you will not regret being in either!

All the best!

Which country should I choose to pursue my Master's degree in Computer Science with minimal expense?

Uk is out of picture. You shouldnt even be thinking of pursuinghigher studies there as no work prospects.

US - is the best for cs/itindustry masters graduates. Trump has a problem with IT companies in india sending their consultants towork in us, earning salary equivalent to a masters graduate and then coming back to india. Thus no contribution towards us economy.

Onthe other hand heencourages sudents to come. And study there and then take up jobs which they deserve, pay fees while studying and pay taxes while doing a job, thus helping in building us economy.

There are many students and other people who are spreadingthis news in a wrong way so they can eliminate their competition (as people change their plans to go to usa for studies) thus improving their chances of securing an admit from the university.

I myself am a cousellor and non of my students changed their plans to study in the us as they were familiarized with the exact situation going on in the country.

Which program should I choose for master in computer science?

Your question is ambiguous so I’ll assume you mean which graduate school rather than which sub-field of computer science.

Assuming you have your choice of graduate schools (and this is unlikely since even the best have some risk of rejection): if you want to work in the U.S., then choose M.I.T. or Stanford depending on which is nearer to where you want to work. Berkeley and Carnegie-Mellon are also excellent choices. In Southern California, there are U.S.C. and Caltech, but admittedly, Stanford will be better than those for jobs in Silicon Valley. If you want to work in the South, then Georgia Tech is best. Of course, in any case M.I.T and Stanford are great choices.

If you are a legal resident of a U.S. state and the cost of tuition matters, go the the best public university in that state (e.g. Berkeley in California)

Outside the U.S. there are a number of good graduate schools and I refer you to the internet to search for the best where you want to work.

Why does location matter? Because connections matter and local-prestige matters.

Should I consider USC or UMN TC for a master's in computer science with a focus on Robotics/AI?

Should I consider USC or UMN TC for a master's in computer science with a focus on Robotics/AI?2021-05-25 00:44:40Mr_祁

If you have a certain interest towards working with a certain professor/group, just choose that university. If you don't, then, both universities are good at machine learning / data mining and you should take into account other factors as well.

You will see that USC has a higher ranking than UMN in the USNews rankings, but that does not count for anything since the difference is not much. At USC, you have no chance of TAship and very less chances of a RA, while at UMN your chances are much higher (and the tuition is much lower). This is usually a crucial point of contention for foreign students coming on education loans. USC has a location advantage for jobs and placements, but again, it completely depends on how you perform in your masters and your job interviews and these factors count for little. USC is also not in the silicon valley (which is northern california). The average quality of masters students is poorer at USC than UMN in fact, because of the large admit sizes in USC. Location and future career options are also important criteria when making this decision. If you want to continue for a PhD, would you rather continue in USC, LA or in UMN, TC (converting a MS to PhD is rather easy at both if you work with a professor) ?

I go to USC myself (as a PhD student though), and know people who work in some excellent data mining labs at both USC (so many, including ISI) and UMN (such as Prof. Vipin Kumar's group). In the end, you should consider all contributing factors and make a wise decision, but if I were in your position, I would definitely go to UMN (mainly because of funding) unless I had a strong connection with any professor or lab at USC.

I am trying to decide between Medical School and Computer Science which one should I choose?

I am trying to decide between Medical School and Computer Science which one should I choose?2021-07-25 12:57:20Mr_龚

In general, when someone is unsure whether they should go into medicine, I advise them not to do it. If you have doubts before you have even begun, or could see yourself being just as happy elsewhere, do that. This is not because there is anything wrong with medicine; I am in the field, it is definitely one of the greatest passions in my life, and I love it and have never regretted this choice. But medical training is tremendously difficult and time consuming, and it isn't worth it for everyone.

I would personally advise studying computer science. However, the fact that you are also interested in medicine could still have a role here! For example: there is a very rapidly growing demand for programmers for medical software, particularly for electronic medical records, which are now legally required for all medical providers in the U.S.. You could still be in medicine as a programmer, rather than a doctor who dabbles in programming. I am not certain about the professional roles or weekly hours worked for doctors outside of the U.S., but I imagine it would be difficult to utilize any programming very much outside of your work as a physician. Further, to work as a programmer in medicine, I doubt the advanced knowledge of a physician would help very much in the effort to create quality software.
