The Computer Science department recently surveyed its graduating students about their experience at MIU and they have expressed appreciation and gratitude. Many students praised the quality of education and the relevance of the subjects taught in the program.

“It was a wonderful experience doing the Master’s in Computer Science at MIU. The curriculum is the latest and the faculty is highly experienced. Everything at MIU made me feel at home. It was a good decision to do my master’s there.”

“The program provides courses that help you to thrive in the professional world. The courses are taught by experienced professors who have gained experience in the IT industry.”

Students were also appreciative of the incorporation of the Transcendental Meditation® technique in the curriculum and the personal growth they have experienced as a result of it.

“The habit of practicing Transcendental Meditation helps a lot to improve personal and professional life. So my overall experience of the MSCS program has been amazing.”

“MIU helped me in many ways to develop myself spiritually and intellectually. Even though I was very hesitant to get an education from a Consciousness-Based university, I think I have made one of the best decisions of my life. Not only have I fulfilled my career desires, I have also fulfilled that missing part in me by developing my spiritual side.”

Another area of fulfillment for students is the international student community and the caring staff and faculty.

“Thanks for providing a great career growth and advancement opportunity with no discrimination to race or country of origin.”

“I am also forever thankful for the opportunities to meet so many wonderful, nice, and kind friends here. It all started with MIU and this beautiful country which connected us as one.”

“I am very grateful to the admission officers, faculty, coordinators, coaches, and many other staff who were professional, supportive, friendly, open, and attentive from enrollment till graduation.”

“Thank you, MIU, for being a second home and a family.”

The Computer Professionals Program has been running for over 23 years and is the 2nd largest Master’s in Computer Science Program in the US. Over 3,000 students have graduated from 100 countries and found internships at top US companies, including many Fortune 500 companies.
