Research

The College of Information and Computer Sciences has long been recognized for its excellence in research and its commitment to technical innovation.  We foster an inclusive and collaborative environment that attracts the brightest students and faculty. We believe our success in research stems from our strong committment to collaborative, interdisciplinary research.

With strong support from the university, the college has embarked on a multi-year expansion of our faculty, programs, and student body.  Our annual research funding exceeded $17.5 million in 2015, coming from private industry and all levels of government. The college maintains significant research collaborations with more than 30 industry-leading technology companies.

Our faculty have been recognized for their contributions to research through lifetime achievement awards, university awards, and highly cited papers.  Our assistant professors have received more than 20 NSF CAREER grants; our faculty includes over 28 fellows of major associations (ACM, IEEE, AAAI, AAAS); and our faculty includes at least six of the top 250 most-cited authors in computer science.

Our research is organized according to major areas of research and the centers and labs carrying out research.
