The use of computers has affected all aspects of society – be it in business, government, education, entertainment, or the sciences – making computer science and information technology an interesting, challenging, and exciting field. As the use of computers becomes more widespread, the complexity of software and the demands and expectations of its users increase. Thus, there is a need for competent IT professionals who are willing to take on the challenge of developing the rapidly evolving technology.
The College of Computer Studies is for those who can take on the challenge of this constantly innovating field of study. The college dares inquisitive minds that have a true passion to explore the possibilities and open the doors of opportunities through the power of technology.
We are a community of scholars imbued with Christian values who have the passion to contribute to national development and social well-being. We are committed to creating and sharing knowledge in Computer Science and ICT as the premiere educational institution in Southeast Asia, recognized globally as the Philippine benchmark for quality education and research.
We nurture the academic community in a culture that develops the total person.
We hone leaders in technical, professional and entrepreneurial domains and train them to adapt to fast-changing technologies and environments. We take the lead in the innovation of new technologies and their applications through cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art learning infrastructure. We pursue opportunities for immersion, consulting, and technology commercialization, working closely with our partners in industry, government, and academe.
We inspire each one to fervently work for the common good, and help those in need, especially the poor and the marginalized.

Master of Science in Information Technology (MS-IT) (pdf/27kb)
The Masters of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) Program aims to provide students with advanced knowledge of Information Technology concepts, techniques, principles, and methodologies, and develop in them skills in using Information Technology to provide solutions to problems of organizations and society. Some of the fields that can be explored under this discipline are e-governance, e-learning, e-commerce, data mining, data warehousing, database management, multimedia systems, information theory, information security, and resource management.
Master of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) (pdf/28kb)
The Masters of Science in Computer Science (MSCS) Program aims to provide students with advanced knowledge in the major areas of Computer Science, and to train students in conducting graduate-level research in the field. Some of the fields in this discipline are bioinformatics, computational linguistics, computer graphics, artificial intelligence, mobile computing, game development, image processing, network security, and software engineering.
Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science (PhDCS) (pdf/92kb)
The Doctor of Philosophy in Computer Science (PhDCS) Program is designed to train students to conduct independent research in Computer Science. Courses are organized around a specialized research area to provide the student with the ability to publish in national and international refereed scientific venues in his/her chosen field of specialization.
Doctorate in Information Technology (DIT) (pdf/32kb)
The Doctorate in Information Technology Program of the DLSU College of Computer Studies is a three-year postgraduate course that targets high-level policy- and decision-makers, with the intent of enabling them to manage macro as well as micro ICT issues in diverse social contexts. The program is expected to be research oriented yet professionally relevant, equipping its graduates to engage meaningfully with concrete social realities in ways that are conceptually grounded.
The course focuses on managing IT in business, educational, and government institutions. One implication is that professionals must be prepared to frame goals for IT interventions in ways that transcend widely-accepted or “common” IT objectives like efficiency, effectiveness, and profitability, while considering other goals such as participation in decision making, quality of relationships, or quality of life. In the course of taking the program students will increasingly need to acknowledge the complexity of ICT, therefore moving away from oversimplified models that view IT processes as linear, predictable, and deterministic.
The program thus seeks to develop professionals who will plan, design, and evaluate IT interventions that are not just transformational, but theoretically informed, critical, ethical, and relevant to Philippine society’s most pressing needs.
