Best Grad Program For a Computer Science Major?

hlimethe3rd It depends on what you want. (372 comments)

An MBA is the most versatile, especially if you want to go into an industry other than computers (consulting, managing, etc). An MBA from a good school opens more doors than anything else. But an MBA looks a lot better with some work experience beforehand, and you might get into an even better school with good work experience and letters of recommendation. Even if you want to stick with computer work, it *still* depends. You hit it on the head: computer science is theoretical. Computer science done right is *science*. An IT degree is practically a vocational degree sometimes. What do you want to do? Do you want to design circuits or program for Apple? Go for science. Do you want to run some company's servers and workstations? Then go IT. Etc. What looks best on a resume depends on where you are submitting. This is something you have to figure out yourself.

It already accounts for almost 75% of the FLOPS for the whole project . Much in the same way as the GPU client produced amazing results, the PS3's cell architecture is ideally suited for Folding calculations. So don't buy one as a gaming console, buy one to save your grandmother."
