What You'll Study

An algorithm for success


Experts in their field, mentors in the classroom

Computer science faculty are avid researchers, with interests spanning a broad range of topics, including theory, ethics, security, simulation of physical and social systems, artificial intelligence and machine learning, bioinformatics, educational game design, mobile systems, and more. Students don’t just learn about these subjects in the classroom, though—they can research alongside faculty, getting hands-on experience in cutting-edge technology.
