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.

More About Our Department
The Center for Innovation in Computing Education and Outreach (CompEdCenter) was officially founded in early 2018. The main goals of the CompEdCenter are to bring together all of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) efforts, innovative course management tools, and the many years of experience of the UVA computing faculty to enhance our impact at UVA, in Virginia, and around the world.Visit the CompEd Center Website >>
Cyber technology has become pervasive and indispensable. Humans interact with cyber systems to conduct many of the tasks of their day-to-day lives. As cyber technology advances and the Internet of Everything becomes reality, it is critical that these systems are secure and that they operate for the benefit of humankind.Visit the Cyber Innovation and Society Website >>
