Welcome to the Department of Computer Science at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering.
Since the department's founding in 1968, our faculty have made pioneering contributions to fundamental and interdisciplinary fields of computing. These include cryptography, information theory, bioinformatics, and computational neuroscience to name but a few. Our recent accomplishments include foundational results in DNA computing, Internet technologies, software architectures and software development modeling, human-robot interaction, statistical natural language processing, game theory, human behavior, and Academy Award winning work in computer graphics. Today, the Department of Computer Science at USC is a research and education leader in computation, information, and digital media, offering innovative environments for interdisciplinary study and international collaboration.
