CS&E has 42 faculty members who provide leadership and expertise to our 600 undergraduate majors, and nearly 400 graduate students.
Our faculty members are highly productive educators and researchers. They are international leaders in their respective fields and authors of widely used software and textbooks. The distinction of our faculty locally and worldwide is confirmed by their long list of awards and honors in research and teaching.
Through the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, ten students from around the U.S. will be spending the summer researching big data at the University of Minnesota. The competitive program allows the undergraduate participants to get meaningful hands-on experiences working on open research questions driven by massive complex datasets, while working under the guidance of Department of Computer Science & Engineering professors.
