Computer + Information Science

Gavriil Tsechpenakis works with student in his labA computer science degree is not about mastering the latest software or the trendiest technology. It’s about graduating with knowledge and skills that you can build on for the rest of your life.

The science of computing is investigated from complex mathematical algorithms, through mnemonic code, translated to binary base and realized in real-world applications. In the Department of Computer and Information Science at IUPUI, applications of computer science range from biological and life sciences to software development—involving every aspect of life from homeland security to archiving cultural heritage. Here, you’ll develop and use innovative problem solving techniques to tackle the toughest technology challenges.

Computer science touches all other degrees and fields. It's at the heart of everything!

IUPUI computer science specialties include: computer security, databases and data mining, graphics and gaming, networking, and software engineering. In addition, students can complete a pre-medical/biocomputing option, which prepares students for medical school or careers in life and health sciences IT.
