- Unique program in computer science that is the only one in the nation that offers a bachelor’s degree online for post-baccalaureate students and can be completed in one year.
- Revolutionary, award-winning educational programs that use personal learning platforms.
- Year-long senior design/capstone course with industry sponsorship and participation.
- MECOP internship program (places selected students in industry for two different six-month internships).
- More than 3,600 enrolled students.
- Strong graduate programs leading to M.Eng., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees.
- Approximately 470 enrolled students.
- More than $12M in research expenditures (last fiscal year)
- Our faculty are bringing their collective talents together to conduct translational research — concepts that go from ideas to impact. This research include:
Develops technology, processes, and software to enable effective access to and utilization of overwhelming amounts of information.
Studies theory, algorithms, and systems for making intelligent decisions in complex and uncertain environments.
Solves challenges including nano-scale device fabrication, integration, and measurement, thin-film deposition, magnetics, spintronics, nanophotonics, sensing, flexible electronics, and vertical transport electronics.
Focuses on various aspects of integrated circuits and systems, microelectronic components and sensors, and advanced communication systems.
Conducts research related to renewable energy, motors, generators, adjustable speed drives, power electronics, power supplies, power quality, electrical systems resiliency, and industrial process equipment and controllers.
Develops tools and techniques to protect sensitive data and infrastructure against malicious attacks.
Addresses challenges related to the modeling, design, and analysis of next-generation networking and computer systems.
Develops novel theories, tools, algorithms, and systems for solving real-world problems including parallel computing, cognitive networks, coding theory, and eco‑informatics.
Focuses on helping people develop software that is effective and accurate through a multiperspective approach.
Studies the design, implementation, and formalization of programming languages.
Explores the limits of computation in developing algorithms and protocols that provide provable performance guarantees such as correctness and privacy.
Conducts research on systems, devices, and data analysis for a variety of health related applications.
Analyzes, synthesizes, understands, and manipulates visual data such as images, video sequences, and 3D geometric content.
Studies theories, frameworks, pedagogical methods, and data related to educating students at all levels in areas related to computer science and, more generally, computational thinking.
