Accepted Students Celebration 2020
Welcome to the Computer Science Department at Rensselaer! We invite you to click below to view more details about our undergraduate program and attend a variety of online events specific to computer science at Rensslaer.
B.S. in Computer Science
Our flexible curriculum accommodates students with diverse interests. Create an open source project, work on a research problem, or complete a dual degree in Mathematics, Biology, Computer Systems Engineering, Cognitive Science, Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences, or Information Technology and Web Science.
Ph.D and M.S. in Computer Science
Come and study with our internationally recognized faculty. Work on foundational research such as data science, distributed computing or security to network science—research that has real-world applications with a societal impact.
The Department of Computer Science at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in Troy, NY is aggressively growing with a focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Cybersecurity (Cyber), broadly defined to cover fundamental theoretical underpinnings, core algorithms, software and systems, and related fields that contribute to or leverage these foci.
Dr. Joe Flaherty, founding chair of the Department of Computer Science, former Amos Eaton Professor and former Dean of the School of Science, passed away Thursday morning March 29 at St. Peter's Hospital in Albany. Joe set a tone of collegiality, respect and excellence that still defines the department and will continue for many years into the future. He will be sorely missed. A memorial service will be held on Saturday April 21 at 9:30 at the RPI campus Chapel and Cultural Center. His on-line obituary can be read at: http://dufresneandcavanaugh.com/tribute/details/1088/Dr-Joseph-Flaherty/...
Department of Computer Science invites applications for multiple Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, or Professor of Practice positions with expertise in one or more of the broad areas of computer science: Theory and Algorithms; Systems and Software; Artificial Intelligence and Data; and Vision, Graphics, Robotics, and Games, along with the ability to teach other introductory computer science courses.
