Computer Science: Generating advances in computation that drive progress in every aspect of human endeavor
Computer science animates our world, driving knowledge creation and innovation that touches every aspect of our lives, from communications devices to the latest medical technology. With significant strengths in the three core areas of computer science—computer systems, theory and artificial intelligence—our department fosters highly productive collaborations that have led to breakthroughs in cyber-physical systems, cybersecurity, machine learning and high-performance computing among other areas. We are applying these discoveries to address some of the most critical societal challenges of the 21st century, in fields such as healthcare, neuroscience and sustainability.
