The Fifth Year Masters Program is a direct Masters program for students receiving a Bachelor of Computer Science degree from Carnegie Mellon. The purpose and goal of the program is to encourage our very brightest undergraduates to become involved with research that broadens their often hectic undergraduate experience. We also want to encourage a select group of students to go on to graduate school by providing them with an additional qualification and period of study beyond the undergraduate degree. Successful completion of the program will result in a Masters Degree.
