Chair's Message

 Weiyi Meng Photography: Binghamton University.

Thank you for your interest in the Computer Science Department at Binghamton University. Binghamton University is one of four research universities in the State University of New York System and an R1 research institute.

The Computer Science Department offers baccalaureate, master’s and PhD degrees. I am very pleased to note that our Master of Science in Computer Science program has added two new tracks starting in fall 2022, one in artificial intelligence and one in cybersecurity. We are working on adding these tracks to our baccalaureate degree in the near future. Furthermore, a brand-new Master of Science in Information Systems degree program, with an Applied Data Science track, also has been launched in fall 2022.

Binghamton University has been consistently ranked as one of the top public universities in the United States and has been the best campus in the State University of New York system for many years (according to the U.S. News and World Report ranking). The University offers a high-quality education at an affordable cost.

With 36 full-time faculty members and over 1,200 students (approximately 700 undergraduate students and over 500 graduate students), Computer Science is the second-largest (the largest in terms of graduate enrollment) and the fastest-growing department on campus. We offer a high-quality and state-of-the-art computer science education for students in all of our degree programs. We have one of the earliest accredited undergraduate programs in the nation (since 1988). Our computer science MS and PhD programs are rigorous and well-established. Students at all levels have opportunities to work with well-known faculty researchers on cutting-edge research projects sponsored by the federal government and high-tech companies. Research results produced by our faculty and students are often published in top computer science conferences.

Most of our PhD students and many highly qualified master’s students receive scholarships in the form of research assistantships or teaching assistantships. In addition, we are very proud of the long and sustained placement record of our graduates.

Once again, thank you for your interest in the Computer Science Department, and we look forward to hearing from you!
