About the Department of Computer Science

This fall, 2017, NC State University's Department of Computer Science is celebrating its 50th anniversary. From its inception in 1967 until today, the department has a history of numbers - growth in enrollments, research dollars, and other data - and is a story of people who make it all happen. These both have allowed the department to grow and prosper into one of the top computer science departments in the nation. The Department strives to achieve further growth and success in the future.

Faculty and students benefit from the outstanding infrastructure and research facilities located on NC State's Centennial Campus and in the Research Triangle - both home to leading technology companies.
