Program Description:

Computing as an academic discipline was started in 1967 at UB, which is one of the first universities to offer degree programs in this field anywhere in the world.  We just celebrated 40 years of excellence in research and education, with year-round talks by our distinguished alumni and a special two day event.  Information, computing and communication technologies pervade nearly all aspects of today’s digital society and will continue in the decades ahead to be of critical importance to the nation’s technological infrastructure.  We are proud of the accomplishments of our many alumni, including among them prize-winning researchers and CEOs of some of the fastest-growing information technology companies. CSE faculty perform world-class research in basic theory, software and hardware, and are recipients of numerous national and international awards.  They serve on the editorial boards of over 30 prestigious journals, and including Fellows of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), American Association for Artificial Intelligence, Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE), International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), and American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS). In a recent survey by the National Science Foundation, we were ranked 21st nationwide for funding in computer sciences.
