As a public research university serving the diverse citizens of Arizona and beyond, the mission of the University of Arizona is to provide a comprehensive, high-quality education that engages our students in discovery through research and broad-based scholarship. We aim to empower our graduates to be leaders in solving complex societal problems. Whether in teaching, research, outreach or student engagement, access and quality are the defining attributes of the University of Arizona’s mission.
Our undergraduates study ways to design computer networking protocols, create and distribute innovative software, develop wireless and mobile computing, create novel programming languages, develop computational biology algorithms, invent highly efficient algorithms for computer graphics, and push the limits of high-performance computing.
Our dynamic program of graduate study integrates quality research and teaching. Our alumni include researchers at AT&T Labs, HP Labs, and IBM Almaden, and faculty at Davis, Purdue, and Virginia.
Students at the University of Arkansas engage in research, invention and development - even the undergraduate students - and so could you. More than a fourth of our students take classes abroad during their college career, but they call the University of Arkansas home. Professors at the University of Arkansas explore life on Mars, imagine new ways of expressing art, and challenge the old methods of health care, education, commerce, and agriculture. University of Arkansas graduates are the chief executive officers of national and international companies. They nurse the current generation and teach the next. If your goals have more personal meaning you'll find professors at the University of Arkansas who are experts in those fields and can show you how. You can set any goal at the University of Arkansas and achieve it. The learning requires discipline, desire and inspiration, but that's what our professors bring to the table.
The impact of Berkeley research on the practical end of computer science has been significant. During the 1970's theoretical research led by Professors R. A. Karp and S. A. Cook established fundamental concepts and limits of computational complexity. Former student Steve Wozniak co-founded Apple Computer with Steve Jobs. Berkeley faculty and students, obtained source code and rights to the early Bell Labs UNIX operating system, added networking features and virtual memory support for the DEC VAX. The work on computer-aided design broke new ground with demonstrations of design synthesis from logic specifications, producing chip designs that are correct by construction. Yet there also were many new activities and achievements, such as its organization Women In Computer Science & Electrical Engineering. WICSE is an organization for all women graduate students in Computer Science at the University of California in Berkeley, which includes a big-sister program.
UC Davis is one of the nation's top public research universities. As one of 10 campuses of the world's pre-eminent public university system, the University of California, we are located in the heart of the Central Valley, close to the state capital and San Francisco Bay Area. UC Davis lays claim to being one of the few remaining college towns where we cherish our close relationships on campus and within the Davis community. UC Davis graduates can be found throughout the world, making an impact in professions that affect all aspects of our lives. Students benefit from a wide range of academic and extracurricular programs, an interdisciplinary research community involved in local and global issues, and an abundance of opportunities to lead and to make an impact on society. UC Davis offers students the experiences in which they discover what matters to them and how to succeed after graduation.
From its founding in the late 60s on a new campus with a unique vision, to its national ranking today, the Bren School has always been a trailblazer in computer science academics and research. From its early focus on providing a broad educational experience, to its current offering of four undergraduate computer science degree programs, a Bren School education is grounded in the basics but also explores the newest technologies and advancements. UC Irvine hosts a club called Women in Information & Computer Sciences. This organization heads an effort to encourage women to pursue a college degree and career in the field of Computer Science by providing them with support.
UCLA's primary purpose as a public research university is the creation, dissemination, preservation, and application of knowledge for the betterment of our global society. To fulfill this mission, UCLA is committed to academic freedom in its fullest terms: they value open access to information, free and lively debate conducted with mutual respect for individuals, and freedom from intolerance. In all of their pursuits, they strive at once for excellence and diversity, recognizing that openness and inclusion produce true quality. These values underlie their three institutional responsibilities. The Computer Science Department strives for excellence in creating, applying, and imparting knowledge in computer science and engineering through comprehensive educational programs, research in collaboration with industry and government, dissemination through scholarly publications, and service to professional societies, the community, the state, and the nation.
The goal of the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering is to be one of the leading and defining engineering schools in the world - a school known for the quality of its students, its stellar research programs, and an environment that fosters innovation and leadership. Surrounded by San Diego's diversified and thriving technology industry, the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering is in a unique position to educate students who are not only creative thinkers, but also have the ability to evaluate the potential of their discoveries. They can and will assist their students and faculty in turning their discoveries into useful and marketable products. Creativity, innovation, and teamwork are the attributes that will provide for a sustainable high-technology workforce and will form the basis for our nation's continued technological and economic leadership.
UCSB is one of only 61 institutions elected to membership in the prestigious Association of American Universities. And the Newsweek guide to America's best colleges has named UCSB one of the country's "hottest colleges" twice in the past decade. In addition to five Nobel Laureates, UCSB's faculty includes many elected members or fellows of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (25), the National Academy of Sciences (32), the National Academy of Engineering (25), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (60). Their computer science department encompasses a dynamic environment for research, a state-of-the-art teaching program, and a first-class faculty. Their degree programs help students become outstanding professionals, prepared to impact all manner of modern society through the application of cutting edge information technology. Their graduates work in a spectrum of settings, from Fortune 500 companies to start-ups, as well as in government and universities.
UCSC opened in 1965 with 650 students. Forty-five years later, the campus is home to nearly 15,000 undergraduates and 1,500 graduate students. Computer science is the study of the theoretical and practical aspects of computer technology and computer usage. The department offers courses on a wide range of topics, many of which include a mathematical component. UC Santa Cruz offers both the bachelor of arts and bachelor of science degrees, as well as the master of science and doctor of philosophy degrees, in computer science. Besides offering instructional courses, the Computer Science Department engages in a substantial research program in which both advanced undergraduates and graduate students participate.
