Computer Science

The next evolution of computing starts here.

Our CS department is training computer scientists who will advance the frontier of what computing means. We’re concerned with the design, development, modeling, analysis and applications of computer-related systems and related engineering areas – particularly in software systems, algorithmic methods, computer interfaces and physical systems.

To that end, our faculty is actively focused on teaching and research within specialized areas of computer science; particularly the areas of artificial intelligence, computer system architecture & CAD, computational systems biology, graphics and vision, information and data management, network systems, software systems, and computer science theory.
