If you’ve ever clicked on a link on the web, settled down for an epic shootout in the one of the biggest video games of all time, used an online map or enjoyed autopilot-like features in a latest-generation car, you’ve benefited from the University of Maryland’s long history of research and innovation in computing.
Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science is home to the biggest and fastest-growing major on campus, educating over 4,000 undergraduate and graduate students yearly. Its more than 50 faculty members, including some of the field’s most prominent leaders and pioneers, have been recognized with membership in national academies and professional scientific organizations, along with countless distinctions and awards.
At the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies (UMIACS), 80-plus faculty members spanning 10 departments in six schools and colleges apply some of the most advanced computing technology to collaborative research on innovations that are changing the world.
Our research cultivates collaborations with key partners to address issues ranging from the global-scale problems facing humanity to the challenges of everyday life. These efforts will only expand with the opening of the new Brendan Iribe Center for Computer Science and Engineering.
