Hello everyone,

I am considering to go to U of Missouri at Kansas City for the Master's program in Computer Science. Anyone would like give me some comments about the university and/or its CS program? Is it easy to find a computer-related job after I graduated? I have no ideas cause I am from outside the US.

Your suggestion is greatly appreciated!

I don't know specific details about the program at the University of Missouri at Kansas City, but here is the web page for the School of Computing and Engineering:

https://sce.umkc.edu/

Did you make the decision to attend UMKC? If so, what did you think about program, and did it help you find a good computer-related job after graduation?

I am currently attending UMKC but as a soon to be pharmacy student at their graduate school. I say that you couldn't really go wrong with CS at UMKC. My sister has a 60k/year fresh out of college job at Commerce Bank. She graduated from Missouri University of Science and Technology which I think has the better CS program but she reports that she has many co-workers who graduated from UMKC's CS program, some of them out of country. I think Missouri S&T (where my sister went) has a slightly better chance of you getting hired out of school (many companies recruit there) but it's in a doo hickey middle of nowhere rural town. If you don't want that I think UMKC is the next best bet since it has all the city amenities to go with it. Best of luck!

Not sure if you're still looking, and not sure how helpful this will be, but just in case...I am a KU Law grad and these days I find myself hiring only from UMKC Law. The students there are more mature, more aware of the world around them, less caught up in school ratings nonsense, and just better in their practice. So I favor UMKC over KU in general for hiring.

The OP asked the question 11 years ago and only has 4 posts, so the chances of him replying to you are zero.

So. The post could apply to anyone looking at going to law school there. It's a nice endorsement.

I would agree with that, the median age of the UMKC 1L is 25+. More than half the class has real world work experience vs straight out of undergraduate.

I always liked the neighborhood around UMKC and the proximity to The Plaza. I think he location, availability/cost of housing, and amenitites Since I haven't been there in quite awhile, maybe the locals could update with their thoughts.

Even if the OP is 11 years old!

UMKC is awesome and underrated. I just wish it were a little larger and a much bigger part of KC's culture and pride. KC desperately needs to take UMKC to a higher and more respectable level (locally and nationally). KC is way to big of a city to not have a large urban university and UMKC is just not quite getting it done. People in KC spend too much effort caring about KU, Kstate and MU (all of which are good schools, but not in KC outside satellite campuses). Maybe getting it out from under the University of Missouri will help. I went there though. It's a great university.
