From day one in computer science, you’ll receive the personal attention and support you need to be successful. Students here reap the benefits of small classes, an interactive learning environment and challenging material and work.

You’ll be mentored by professors who are leaders in every important area of computer science. With a 11:1 student faculty ratio, you are sure to make a connection with our professors. As early as freshman year, all of our students have the opportunity to participate in research. The department maintains several research centers, which are funded in part by the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.

We’re a community of learners and students thrive here. An active Computer Science Study Center assists all undergraduates in computer science courses with their work, and is open over 50 hours per week. Computer Science club, volunteer programs and interdisciplinary research are just a few of the opportunities for students to get involved outside of the classroom. We also boast a 100% job placement rate at graduation.


In the Department of Computer and Information Science at IUPUI, applications
of computer science range from biological and life sciences to software development—involving every aspect of life from homeland security to archiving cultural heritage. Here, you’ll develop and use innovative problem solving techniques to tackle the toughest technology challenges.

We’re one of seven departments in the School of Science, situated in the heart of Indianapolis, near five hospitals, the Indiana University schools of medicine, dentistry and nursing, and countless science and technology companies. Through internships and undergrad research, our students have opportunities to collaborate across disciplines, across campus, and across the academic and business communities.

Committed to having real impact in their work and community, our graduates emerge armed with the technical proficiency, project management skills, communication expertise, and analytical skills needed to develop working solutions for the computing challenges of today—and tomorrow.
