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 and 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

At the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, undergraduate research is actively promoted and students have various opportunities to get involved. In the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, all major research groups work with undergraduates. We welcome upperclass students with a strong GPA and work ethic to meet with faculty in areas of study that interest them.
The university's Undergraduate Creative Activities And Research Experience At Nebraska program pairs undergraduate students with faculty, providing a unique educational experience by allowing students to be involved in ongoing research or other creative activities.
