Computer Science

Research Focus

Artificial Intelligence. Big Data. Cybersecurity. We tap into solutions and innovation for more power, efficiency, expansion, mobility, and safety. We develop better and new ways to improve everyday life, from wearable health devices to scenarios for on-time construction projects. We teach young coders, and the software developers of tomorrow. We explore how humans interact with computers, and how society interacts with electricity. 

The Computer Science Department leads computing-related research and education at Michigan Tech. Computing is a discipline without boundary. As we build strong research and teaching environments for our students and faculty, we extend collaboration and outreach across campus, to our colleagues in engineering, science, and business, as well as to industry, local communities, professional societies, and alumni.
