With almost 50 faculty members, more than 300 graduate students and nearly 2,000 undergraduates, the Department of Computer Science continues to provide a world-class research environment that goes well beyond the core areas of computer science.
Our curricula and research focus on an array of topics, including computer architecture, system software, networking and distributed computing, data and information systems, the theory of computation, artificial intelligence, and computer graphics. But we also explore highly interdisciplinary topics such as biomedical informatics, data mining, security and privacy, and ubiquitous computing.
The diverse research interests of our faculty are reflected directly in our educational programs. Our esteemed faculty members teach most of the undergraduate and graduate courses for the degree programs in computer science. With our colleagues in The Henry Samueli School of Engineering, we offer a joint undergraduate degree in computer science and engineering, as well as a graduate program in networked systems. Our department collaborates with many other institutions in the United States and abroad, and our door is always open to a multitude of visitors and collaborators from all corners of the globe.
We are also excited to have recently launched our new professional Master of Computer Science (MCS) program next fall. The program, spearheaded by Professors Amelia Regan and Michael Goodrich, will provide a hands-on, interactive experience for students looking to bolster their careers.
I invite you to explore some of the highlights of the cutting-edge work that our department’s faculty members are doing on our news page.
