Explore. Examine. Experience research that transforms your education.
Research is an important component of our CCIS Master’s programs. For graduate students planning to pursue a PhD or research-driven career path, it can be an integral part of your experiential education. You have the opportunity to work on research projects instead of—or in addition to—your co-op. Review our research areas, speak to one of our research faculty, or contact your co-op coordinator to learn about research opportunities at CCIS, an outside organization, or even another university.
Your research experience is what you make it
A strong current of research and innovation runs through the halls of CCIS, from groundbreaking discoveries in artificial intelligence to critical insights in data science to pioneering experiments in robotics. They’re all made possible by our incredible faculty, a growing number of research grants from the National Science Foundation and National Institute of Health, and private-sector funding from companies like Mozilla, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and Apple.
Choosing the right opportunity for you
CCIS offers a diverse range of research areas, which may make choosing the right path feel overwhelming. We encourage you to get involved and discover which topics most interest you. Attend a weekly seminar or research colloquium. Reach out to our research faculty to discuss their current work. Talk to your co-op coordinator about research co-op opportunities. Whichever path you pursue will provide an incredibly valuable experience for your PhD or career.
