Dear CSE Students, Alumni, Friends and Colleagues,

Dr. Wei Zhang

Despite the COVID-9 pandemic, the CSE academic programs for both undergraduate and graduate students continue to flourish. We have seen a record number of BS CSE student enrollment, as well as a 71.6% increase in the enrollment of our MS CS program in the fall semester of 2020. We continue to support and develop the largest graduate programs in the Speed School, including our Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering and MS in Computer Science programs, including both the regular and online programs. In AY 2020-2021, CSE faculty have successfully secured numerous competitive external grants from NSF, NSA, DoD, NIH, or other federal/state agencies, non-profit organizations, and industry.

Founded in 1971, the CSE Department will celebrate the 50th anniversary in the fall semester of 2021. It is a great time for celebrating our achievements, connecting with our alumni and friends, and planning for the future. Without the strong support from our alumni, donors, and students, the CSE department’s success would not have been possible. We are very thankful for the support of our donors and look forward to your continued support.
