Coppin's tree-lined 52-acre campus in West Baltimore is one of the city's most impressive settings for learning. The learning experiences for Coppin students are not limited to the campus. All of Baltimore is their classroom, offering many opportunities to supplement campus experiences with cultural, social and recreational activities. In addition, Coppin students get valuable on-the-job training with national and local companies and agencies through the University's Cooperative Education and Internship Programs. Internships are offered in several majors and provide students with practical experience in the career they plan to enter. The Cooperative Education Program provides students with actual work experience for one or more semesters, interspersed with the regular University program of study.
Cornell's Department of Computer Science boasts a young, productive faculty, an abundance of outstanding students, and success in attracting sponsored research. We have complemented our strength in the essential core areas (artificial intelligence, programming languages, scientific computing, systems, and theory) with new commitments to databases, graphics, machine learning, and natural language processing. Cornell CS is widely known for its collegiality and its ability to move rapidly into new interdisciplinary fields such as information science and computational biology. The department's challenge is to be simultaneously strong in the core areas of computer science while being a major force in emerging and interdisciplinary areas.
