“How many fields can you get right out of university and define substantial aspects of a product that is going to go out and over 100 million people are going to use it?” – Bill Gates
The programs that our department offers are founded on this strong and vibrant base. Our graduates are computer scientists who can integrate computingrelated theories and practices, and appreciate the value of good engineering design. Their training, which is undergirded with computational thinking, provides them mastery of a technology with great power to change the world, ranging from the sciences, to financial services, engineering and entertainment.
