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.

From the Chair

The Computer Science Department leads computing-related research and education at Michigan Tech. Our faculty have diverse interests in architecture; artificial intelligence; cloud computing; cybersecurity; data science; distributed, embedded, and multimedia systems; graphics and visualization; human-computer interaction; machine learning; mobile computing; software engineering; virtual environments; and wireless networks. 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.

We are proud to lead computing-related research and educational
programs at Michigan Tech. In particular, the department plays an important role in Michigan Tech’s
Institute of Computing and Cybersystems (ICC). Graduate and undergraduate students gain valuable experience working with ICC members and our faculty, with industry, and with agencies including the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and the US Department of Defense. We join with researchers across campus and the world to promote research and learning experiences for a computing society. Meet the researchers and learn about our interdisciplinary projects. 

We look forward to continued research success as we prepare students to create the future. I'm excited to share our successes and future goals. Feel free to contact me if you want to learn more about computer science research at Michigan Tech.
