Spend less on tuition. UB has a worldwide reputation for academic excellence, but the cost of attending our undergraduate and graduate programs is much less than many comparable public and private universities.
A degree in Computer Science or Computer Engineering opens doors to exciting and rewarding careers that command high salaries. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, the median income for all computing and information technology occupations was $82,860 in May 2016.
Over the past three years, we have hired six new faculty members: in algorithms, databases, data mining, electronic commerce, natural language processing, and networks. Computer science was first organized as a department at UB in 1967—one of the first in the U.S.—and merged with computer engineering in 1998 to form the present department.
UB's Center for Computational Research (CCR) is considered one of the nation's leading supercomputing centers and supports high performance computing for departmental research in the areas of bioinformatics, medical image processing, virtual reality, and geographic information systems.
