Research and Innovation

Award-winning faculty, driven students and cutting-edge technology

When it comes to research and innovation, we consistently achieve a level of excellence unparalleled by most. Our groundbreaking, globally renowned undergraduate research has continually led to industry-evolving innovations.

In the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, interdisciplinary research is integral to our culture.


We invest about $5 million each year to conduct state-of-the-art research in software engineering, informatics and systems.


Not only is 100 percent of our tenured and tenure-track faculty engaged in active research programs, but so are our graduate and undergraduate students.

Collectively, our outstanding faculty:

  • Hold eight National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER awards
  • Publish an average of two journals and six conferences each year
  • Produce a number of patents, books, book chapters and essays
  • Produce research using more than $3.75 million a year in grant expenditures
