UMBC’s Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering (CSEE) offers academic programs leading to ABET-accredited undergraduate degrees in Computer Engineering and Computer Science; and to doctorate and master’s degrees in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Electrical Engineering. The CSEE Department also hosts the Master’s in Professional Studies (M.P.S.) degree and graduate certificate programs in Cybersecurity and Data Science. We are the largest department on campus in terms of undergraduate and graduate students. CSEE research spans areas in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Quantum computing, Data Science, Cybersecurity of Hardware, Software, and Systems, Photonics, VLSI, Graphics and Visualization, Wireless, Mobile and Sensor systems, Signal Processing and Theory. Our inter and trans disciplinary research leads to collaborations within the department across the different elements of computing and electrical engineering, but also with other departments in the university as diverse as Physics, Biology, Linguistics and Aging studies. Our program is supported by grants from a variety of federal and industrial sources.
