New Computer Science Building Planned at Maharishi University of Management

The Computer Professionals MS program at Maharishi University of Management is our largest academic program. We have graduated more than 1,300 students since 1996, with more than 500 currently enrolled. The program attracts students from all over the world, and has given them paths to success at more than 1,000 US companies and organizations.

The MSCS program is also our fastest growing program.. Enrollment has expanded from around 160 new students per year over the past few years, to over 300 this year, and we expect enrollment to continue growing over the next three years. We need to support this rapid expansion with more top-level faculty, additional courses, and classrooms and labs.

The 12,000 square foot McLaughlin Building, inaugurated in 2002 created a beautiful home for the program.  An additional new 18,000 square foot building, built next to the McLaughlin Building will accommodate this growth for the next five years.
