Message from the Department Head

Welcome to the Computer Science Department of the University of Puerto Rico Río Piedras!

We provide an education of excellence, with many opportunities for research and the possibility of obtaining very interesting jobs with good salaries once graduated. The future of our students is limited only by their dedication.  We pride our selves of the balanced theoretic and applied education we provide to our students and the many opportunities at their hand.

We are located in the College of Natural Sciences, in the only campus in Puerto Rico with intensive research classification by the Carnegie Foundation. This allows our students to participate and collaborate in interdisciplinary research during their studies.

We also provide a variety of elective courses in different areas of interest such as: cyber security, visualization, parallel computing, computer networks, bioinformatics, among others.

If you are a CS major, you already did a great choice.  If you are not, you should consider taking a few of our courses to be prepared to a future of data challenges and computing.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our programs and about the research that is being conducted by our faculty members. And of course, if you happen to be in Puerto Rico, please come by to say hello.
