Faculty 

 

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of North Texas provides very high quality educational programs by maintaining a balance between theoretical and experimental aspects of computer science, as well as a balance between software and hardware issues, and by providing curricula that serve the citizens and industrial organizations of Texas in general, and those in North Texas in particular. The department offers ABET-accredited bachelor of science degrees in computer science and computer engineering. The department facilitates a collegial atmosphere that is conducive to intellectual and scholarly pursuits of the faculty and students. The department strongly encourages interdisciplinary research.

At present, the department offers a bachelor of arts with a major in information technology; bachelor of science and master of science, both with a major in computer science; bachelor of science and master of science degrees, both with a major in computer engineering; and a doctoral degree in computer science and engineering. Current research interests of the faculty include theoretical computer science, databases, game programming, wired and wireless networks, computer security, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, computer systems architecture, agent based systems, collaborative learning, parallel and distributed processing, numerical analyses, wireless communication, image understanding, sensor fusion, data mining, evolutionary computation, computational epidemiology, VLSI design, medical imaging, compilers, algorithm analyses, human factors, cryptography, image processing, and bioinformatics. The departmental research is supported by federal and state agencies as well as industrial concerns.

Vision and Mission

The vision of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering is to be a recognized leader for quality education and research in selected areas in information technology, computer science and engineering. The vision will be achieved by recruiting high caliber faculty and students, and by continuously improving on the curricula and teaching methods. The department aims to establish research and educational collaborations with international institutions of higher education. The department facilitates a collegial atmosphere that is conducive to intellectual and scholarly pursuits of the faculty and students. The department strongly encourages interdisciplinary research.

The mission of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering is to provide high quality education through its undergraduate and graduate degree programs in information technology, computer science and computer engineering, as well as to conduct nationally recognized research in selected areas of computer science and engineering. The BA with a major in information technology provides a high quality education in a liberal arts setting that is responsive to the needs in the surrounding business community. The BS with a major in computer science and the BS with a major in computer engineering provide very high quality education by maintaining a balance between theoretical and experimental aspects of computer science and computer engineering, as well as a balance between software and hardware issues, and by providing curricula that serve the citizens and industrial organizations in Texas in general, and those in North Texas in particular.
