Welcome from Dr. Qiang Zhu

I welcome you to the web presence of the Department of Computer and Information Science at the University of Michigan-Dearborn. 

To support the mission of the College of Engineering and Computer Science, to be the leader in providing quality undergraduate and graduate programs in an environment integrated with engineering practice, research, and continuing professional education, in close partnership with the industrial community, our departmental mission is to provide an outstanding education in the various facets of computer and information science. Through our multiple degree programs, we provide students with the knowledge and tools for a successful career in this discipline. Our faculty, graduates of some of the best schools of this country and overseas, are active in education and research in various areas, who seek to impart their knowledge and experience to their students. We strive to be one of the leading computer and information science departments in the country.  

The Department of Computer and Information Science is one of four departments in the College of Engineering and Computer Science. Our 17 full-time tenured/tenure-track faculty members conduct research in the areas of artificial intelligence, computational game theory, complex systems, computer graphics and geometric modeling, data management, data science, graphical models, machine learning, multimedia information systems, multimedia mining, multimedia systems and gaming, networking, computer and network security, semantic web, web services, and software engineering. Their research work has been sponsored by a variety of funding sources including NSF, NIH, NHTSA, DOS, IBM, Ford, Chrysler, Microsoft, and Amazon among others. They are active in their respective research communities by serving on editorial boards for highly reputable journals and program/organizing committees for leading international conferences.

For undergraduate studies, we offer a B.S. in Computer and Information Science, a B.S. in Software Engineering, a B.S. in Data Science, and a B.S. in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance. In addition, we offer a concurrent B.S. in CIS Mathematics and a minor in Computer and Information Science. For graduate studies, we offer a Ph.D. in Computer and Information Science, an M.S. in Computer and Information Science, an M.S. in Data Science, and an M.S. in Software Engineering.
