I can't speak to the advisability of your friend's idea, but a
convenient part-time program in this area is the Johns Hopkins
University Engineering Program for Professionals
(http://www.epp.jhu.edu/).  I just got my master's degree in
computer science through that program, but my bachelor's degree is
in the same field, so I expect my experience was different from what
your friend can expect.  I should note that JHU EPP is not geared
toward research, so I don't recommend it for people who want to go
on to pursue a PhD in computer science.  I would recommend it to
virtually everyone else, though.
