Welcome to the Department of Computer Science and Statistics
In a time when the role of Data Science is gaining prominence, the Department of Computer Science and Statistics at University of Rhode Island is favorably positioned to take advantage of the synergies between these two disciplines.
Faculty members are actively involved in cutting-edge research areas including biostatistics and bioinformatics, Bayesian methods, digital forensics, machine learning and data-mining, network analysis, interactive 3D graphics, econometrics, and spatiotemporal modeling. Several of these areas provide opportunities for collaboration with scientists from other fields, making the department a well integrated center of multidisciplinary research.
Students at the undergraduate and graduate level have the opportunity to choose from a variety of programs. Our faculty members bring their expertise in research and teaching to help students develop problem solving and learning skills, necessary in a fast evolving discipline, while getting prepared to find employment in diverse industrial and academic settings.
