Research Interests of Faculty Members

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering faculty members are current and active in the discipline and have the necessary technical breadth and depth to support a modern computer engineering program. There are enough faculty members to provide continuity and stability, to cover the curriculum reasonably, and to allow an appropriate mix of teaching and scholarly activity (100 percent of our full-time faculty have published peer-reviewed papers in reputable international scientific journals, conference proceedings, and chapters in book over the past five years). The department has 13 full-time faculty, seven of whom are tenured faculty members.
