We are a highly selective program that welcomes and supports excellent applicants. To apply, you should use the online application system (Deadline: January 8, 2020, a 90$ application fee).  Applicants are required to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), and to submit three letters of recommendation.

Please note that while you are free to email faculty to explore possible common research interests, admission decisions are made by the Department.

While most of our graduate students have majored in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or in the mathematical sciences as undergraduates, applicants with other backgrounds have also been successful in our department. Students will succeed in the program if they are motivated to do research and have a strong general intellectual preparation to study in a particular field of computer science.
