Welcome to Northeastern University’s College of Computer and Information Science (CCIS). Step inside and you’ll find a hub of academic innovation inspired by and suited for our information-driven world.

You’ll find remarkable students gaining critical knowledge and key insights. Passionate faculty delivering hands-on lessons and hard-earned perspectives. Dedicated academic advisors and co-op coordinators building connections and confidence. Systems and facilities designed for collaboration and creativity.

And yet our focus goes well beyond the walls of the college, with interdisciplinary programs that integrate computer and information science across academic fields and industries. Research that relentlessly breaks new ground. Courses that prepare graduates to walk into any company and contribute on day one. Co-ops that deliver real-world experience, pave the way for new opportunities, and position our students for a lifetime of success.

We believe computer science is everywhere. It’s in the technology that brings people together, the data that fuels discoveries, the health care that saves lives. In a world where computer science matters for everyone, CCIS leads the way.

Maybe that’s why CCIS is growing like never before. We’re enrolling record numbers of students—highly motivated minds at all levels and from all corners of the world. We continue recruiting the best and brightest professors, and as a result our faculty has doubled over the past six years. Our academic programs have strengthened too, evolving to meet the challenges of a changing world.

Now more than ever, the College of Computer and Information Science is on the move and on the rise. As dean of the college, I invite you to join us—as a student, professor, partner, or friend—as we take the next great leap.
