About the division
The Software and Computer Systems division is one of five divisions within the Computer Science department of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
The division consists of ten professors, ten associate professors, three assistant professors, five lecturers, ten postdocs and about fifty doctoral (Ph.D.) students. We also have one guest professor and one adjunct professor. A number of members of the above mentioned faculty are on leave of absense to varying degrees.
The goal of the division SCS is to continue strong research and education on fundamental aspects of software technology and computer systems, central areas within Computer Science. We have a focus on cloud computing, networked systems, security in networked systems, systems for service computing, social networks, time aware systems, data science, and applied AI as well as Software Engineering.
