The Department of Computer Science is a research-oriented department with a distinguished history of contributions in systems, theory, artificial intelligence, and HCI. We have a collaborative culture and strong ties to electrical and computer engineering, cognitive science, linguistics, and several departments in the medical center. We also have a nascent Institute for Data Science with potential for synergistic collaboration opportunities and more joint hires. Over the past decade, a third of the department's PhD graduates have won tenure-track faculty positions, and its alumni include leaders at major research laboratories such as Google, Microsoft, and IBM.
