Computer Science


Computer Science innovation is strong in all areas of database management. The primary focus is on software development, e.g. mining, monitoring, querying, merging, etc.  Other research areas include cryptography, data and network security, and sensor fusion, especially in critical high reliable applications such as Homeland Security. The departments of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering and the associated focused research centers (see Center for Research in Exploratory Data and Information Analysis) are the primary originators of this inventive activity.
