It’s now possible to receive a Masters in Computer Science from a nationally recognized program – without ever stepping foot inside a classroom.

The online offering of Georgia Tech's Master of Science in Computer Science (OMS CS) in the exciting new "massive online" format is now available – with the first class beginning today. AT&T’s very own Beth Sackner, Principal Technical Architect, applied and began the OMS experience today.

“With the ability to work towards a degree wherever there is a broadband connection, this opportunity came at the right time and right place in my life.  My children are older.  And I can devote time at night, on the weekends or even on my lunch hour without having to step a foot outside my workplace. I work and live in a “remote” part of New Jersey and not having to drive two hours several times a week is immensely appealing,” says Sackner in her recent consumer blog.

With this degree, Beth is aiming for a dual specialization in Systems and Networking. She hopes to broaden my breadth of skills in these areas, and enhance AT&T’s portfolio of offerings.

This course, offered in collaboration with Udacity and AT&T,  is the first and only degree entirely on the “massive-online” platform for course delivery. View our Georgia Tech online Master of Science in Computer Science infographic to learn more key points about the new program.
