The Department of Computer Science emphasizes experimental research to design and engineer a wide variety of computer and information systems. Our projects and contributions range from computer-aided design, computer architecture and VLSI, embedded systems and sensors; through network protocols and middleware; up to application-level research in graphics, image recognition, human-computer interaction, data mining, bioinformatics and multimedia; and beyond, to Internet-scale information retrieval and grid computing.
This wide range of interests promotes many effective and exciting collaborative projects. The departments research funding continues to grow and our current portfolio of sponsors include Federal Agencies (NSF, AFOSR, NIH, & DOE) as well as industry.
We're always looking for bright, energetic students — both graduate and undergraduate — to join our groups and contribute to our research.
