What will I learn?

The Computer Science department conducts research in a wide variety of areas, from functional programming, formal verification, and theorem proving to artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and cybersecurity. Our faculty regularly publish in top-level venues, including recent papers in Science and the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

We are leading several interdisciplinary centers that involve other departments on campus; in particular the Center for Design Thinking, the Cybersecurity Education and Research (CEDAR) Center, and the Artificially Intelligent Manufacturing (AIM) Center. We regularly collaborate with companies and other research institutions; internships are available as part of these partnerships. Our interdisciplinary collaborations allow us to integrate graduate students with a wide variety of backgrounds prepare to broaden your horizon beyond computer science!

We are a small department and you will have the opportunity to have an impact, both with your research and on the department itself. We regularly provide opportunities for all students to visit conferences and workshops and participate in other events that will further your research or put you in contact with prospective employers. Our recent graduates are now pursuing careers as scientists in industry or college professors.

Most of our graduate students receive a full stipend for tuition costs and living expenses. The cost of living in beautiful Laramie is among the lowest in the US. We are situated in the heart of a small college town between two mountain ranges that offer plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities year-round.
