Key facts about our Department and campus

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras campus offers an ABET-accredited Bachelor in Science degree in Computer Science, as well as MS and PhD degrees in Applied Math in collaboration with the Mathematics Department.

The Río Piedras campus of the University of Puerto Rico is located in the capital, San Juan. It is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a High Research Activity campus. It is the largest campus of the UPR system, and a premier Hispanic-serving Institution.

The Department of Computer Science is relatively new and small, but increasingly popular among students. It is currently undergoing an expansion phase which will lead to the inauguration of its own graduate program, planned for year 2019.

The location and status of UPR-RP attracts to our department some of the area's brightest students who enjoy several fellowship opportunities through NSF-funded activities: for example ATACK-PR, and SSTEM.

Research is a major focus in the department. There are abundant research funding opportunities, both from federal (e.g. NSF, NIH) and local sources (PR Science and Technology Trust). The department is home to a number of current research and educational awards (see here), including an NSF CAREER award.
