​Colloquia Series

Throughout the year, faculty members invite speakers from industry and other universities to give public colloquia in the department. These talks are extremely important to help the Department of Computer Science & Engineering to stay abreast of developments in the field and encouraging productive relationships with researchers outside the department.
