Research

The Department of Computer Science & Engineering conducts high-impact research and trains future researchers, engineers and educators in both the fundamental properties of computing systems and how computation can benefit a wide range of disciplines. Key themes include designing computing systems that interact with humans and the physical world, using computation to interpret large data sets from science and engineering, and creating safe, secure infrastructure to connect millions of people to their data and to each other.
