The many interests of our faculty ensure a wide selection of courses and research possibilities for our students. The Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering and the Institute of Cognitive Science also offer courses that are of interest to our students, and several of our faculty collaborate with members of these organizations.

The administration of the University of Colorado recognizes the importance of computing in today's world and is aggressively pursuing resources in the form of faculty positions, space, and other initiatives. We hired five new faculty recently and will continue to hire additional faculty in the years to come. All this translates into an increasing selection of courses and research areas for our students.
