On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of the Department of Computer Science, I welcome you!

These are exciting times for Computer Scientists as the discipline is now on the rise again, and it deserves to be so, as it is an essential source of tools and techniques for advancements in nearly all spheres of human endeavor. Through excellence in research, teaching, and service our dedicated faculty has distinguished itself in the core areas of computer science, and in many related multi-disciplinary areas. We continue to stress diversity in our hiring – and strongly support the creation of a diverse workforce. Though we encourage our own students through our student recruiting and retention programs, we also emphasize on attracting world-class faculty irrespective of their nationality, ethnicity and gender. Our courses and our research span established areas of software engineering, databases, networking, algorithms, semantic computing and distributed systems, as well as emerging areas such as bioinformatics. Our faculty and students collaborate in interdisciplinary research across the university as well as with other universities.

Whether you are a student, a parent, alumnus, a corporate partner, or a colleague, we want to hear from you. Your comments and suggestions will help us move to the next level, and provide us with encouragement to maintain excellence.

Dr. Nayyer Masood Dar
Head, Department of Computer Science
