The opportunity to work on tangible, substantial and real projects that matter
From making our data more secure to helping First Responders save lives, we are on the vanguard of developing solutions for a changing world. Our work has the potential to radically alter everything from how search-and-rescue operations are conducted in urban disaster zones, to how we search for information online. And while we have built our program on a strong theoretical base, it is the real-world application of our research that we find the most exciting aspect of what we do. By looking at problems through a computer science research lens, we can develop systems and technologies that provide relief to those most in need. We face complex issues and new threats, and our students emerge well-equipped to respond and make an impact on local, national and international levels.
