"While I was searching for a good masters program, I looked at curriculums of over 40 Computer Science departments in the US. But none had a program like the one at St. Thomas. St. Thomas has good ties with the business community, and hence the courses offered here are very 'in-touch' with the needs of the software industry. The curriculum has an excellent balance between general concepts of software and specializations in different areas of software. The instructors at St. Thomas are also highly experienced and each course is a new experience in itself! Studying at St. Thomas makes you wish your curriculum required you to take more courses just so you could sit in all of those exciting classes. Though I've graduated, I know this will not be the last of my association with this wonderful university." -- Neelima Kalidindi, Master of Software Systems
