Welcome from the Chair

Thank you for visiting the Georgia Tech School of Computational Science and Engineering! The School of CSE, as we call ourselves, is the country’s premier department focused on solving real-world challenges through advanced computational techniques, thanks to a world-class faculty and dedicated students.

CSE’s mission is to improve the quality of life in society through advances in computational methods and data analysis techniques that solve diverse problems in areas such as the diagnosis and treatment of cancer and disease, sustainability, transportation, social networks, national security, and defense. Our department’s hallmark is in developing novel techniques for large-scale computation and massive data sets, often with leading industry partners and national labs, which is essential to progress in all research areas.

Our degree programs are creating a new type of scholar well versed in synthesizing principles from mathematics, science, engineering and computing, and in using leading-edge technology. Our unique culture, creative community, and network of opportunities offer the most relevant preparation possible for students.

CSE students, researchers and partners all benefit from our ecosystem of innovation that integrates the existing assets of Georgia Tech’s Technology Square with new opportunities in interdisciplinary research, commercialization, and sustainability. After you explore our site, I hope you’ll decide to become part of our global—and growing!—community.
