Research is an important component of the faculty and student activities in the College of Computing and Software Engineering. A lot of research is driven by the interest of individual faculty and many of them have included a description of their research in their personal faculty pages, which you can access from the faculty and staff directory.

In addition, CCSE is always looking for applied research projects in which to engage with industry. If you have such a project, please contact the please contact the Associate Dean of Research, Paola Spoletini at the email below.
