What will be the course duration of MS in CS, if I do a co-op of 4, 6 or 8 months? I am concerned that the money I gain during co-op will offset the living costs and other expenses due to the extra duration required to complete the course.
This is a nice question. Recently there was a change in the USCIs rules, you can actually work with the professors or as a TA even though you’re in CO-OP. It’s like you are earning with the college and you are earning with the university. But you have to be in days in Boston. I would say the course duration will increase. I came in fall 17 december final semester, it took me 2 years and 4 months to complete my entire graduation but it was worth it. I had 2 CO-OP’s and it paid some of the cost of the last 2 semester of my fees. Don’t worry too much about the graduation duration. Just consider the money, if you concern lot of things then it will make a huge difference. If your getting a chance to do MS in US please do it because it’s the top 5 programs in the entire world, you can go and check CS rankings or something like that. So if you get a chance please do it, don’t deny the opportunity.
