The Department of Computer Science and Engineering continues to evolve as we work to meet today’s computing challenges. Over the past year, we have seen a strong demand for our majors, and our student population continues to grow. We continue to bring in new faculty to accommodate such growth having hired three new faculty with research interests in areas such as cybersecurity and data science. In addition, we have just moved to the newly renovated Peterson building. This modern redesign provides more space for our faculty and students as we expand to meet the needs of students, industry and society as a whole.
Our curriculum remains strong, and we continue to evolve our courses to meet the ever-changing needs of society through feedback from our students, alumni and industrial affiliates. The field of computing continues to advance rapidly, changing how we interact with each other and the world around us, perhaps more now than ever. I am proud to be part of this field and this department as we rise to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow, and I think both current students and alumni will be impressed with the growth of our department.
