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.

According to MUM MSCS student Stanley Kariuki,"MUM is one of the most amazing places to live and to study. The faculty are remarkable, and the students are really great. It’s like one big international family working to build your career."
"Fairfield has a quiet, peaceful environment with great beauty, and the people here are warm and great. This community is awesome. I have made friends with people from different countries and am loving it here. I will miss this a lot when I leave," says Stanley.
When Stanley left his native Kenya in June 2013 to come to MUM, it was his first time on an airplane. His goal is to get into the software development business, try out a few ideas, and hopefully help some of his Kenyan friends take their first airplane to the U.S. and MUM. See the story.
