Research Areas

The computer science research programs at Illinois are unmatched in their breadth, depth, and quality. Our faculty contribute to research in the following areas of the discipline:

Student Research

Ground-breaking research is conducted by students at every level at Illinois.  Whether as part of a thesis or coursework, our students are exploring and extending the boundaries of computer science.

Graduate Student Theses and Research

Graduate student research papers, technical reports, theses, and dissertations are available in the Illinois Digital Environment for Access to Learning and Scholarship (IDEALS) scholarly work repository.

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research opportunities abound for any student who’s interested—even freshman. Visit the College of Engineering Undergraduate Research page to learn more about programs such as the Illinois Scholars Undergraduate Program (ISUR) and Promoting Undergraduate Research in Engineering (PURE) to get started today.

Illinois researchers and educators with an email address may request assistance from CS undergraduate students to develop a software project. To complete the form, you will need to submit a link to a web page which describes the needs of your project.

College of Engineering Office of Safety

The Office of Safety acts as a resource for research and occupational safety, and to liaise with university safety and security resources and external regulatory bodies. It works to ensure that the college creates a safe and healthy workplace, maintains a respect for the environment, and respects and adheres to all applicable laws, regulations, and University environmental, health, and safety requirements.
