Go beyond computer science
Do you want to develop your computing skills while growing into the best person you can be? MIU’s computer science programs will prepare you with the skills you need for a successful career while supporting your personal and creative growth with daily meditation, a healthy routine, and a caring community.
In our department programs, you will:
- Become proficient in computer science and learn the skills you need for a successful career in the field
- Focus on one full-time course per month and enjoy a balanced daily routine that sustains a high level of academic performance
- Reduce stress and experience deep peace through regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation® technique
- Enjoy the support of our friendly, international campus community of students and faculty
Today, computer networking systems connect millions of people and almost every educational, research, and business institution in the world. Computing skills are vital in almost every field, from education and research to commerce and entertainment.
Our programs prepare graduates for success by teaching them comprehensive computer science knowledge along with the ability to think clearly, precisely, and creatively.
Learn more with less stress
Instead of balancing multiple classes, exams, and homework assignments, you’ll be focusing on one topic at a time in our innovative block system.
In the block system, you’ll be taking only one full time-course per month, giving you the time you need to fully absorb the knowledge and focus on what you’re learning.

Nabini Khanal, a 2001 graduate of our MS in Computer Science, originally hails from a small village in Nepal and now works for Microsoft as a Group Program Manager, managing 30+ employees worldwide and a multimillion dollar departmental budget.
“If not for MIU, I would not be living the kind of life I have,” says Nabin. “I am blessed to be part of the MIU family. MIU is a part of my success story.”
Vikas Narula, a 1994 graduate of our BS in Computer Science, is the owner and founder of Keyhubs, a Minneapolis-based management software and consulting firm that uncovers a company’s “hidden organization” — the informal network of relationships between workers that shows how work actually gets done.
“To me, entrepreneurship is more than about making money,” says Vikas, “It’s really a spiritual journey, a journey of self-discovery and growth. MIU taught me that. MIU gave me a perspective on life that helped me see things beyond the material. It helped me understand what matters most.”
