Areas of Research Focus

The University of Utah’s School of Computing, founded as the Computer Science Department in 1965, has a long and distinguished record of high impact research. This started with pioneering work in computer graphics, computer architecture, and digital audio, plus being the fourth node on the ARPAnet, the predecessor of today’s Internet. Current work include both classical computer science and a number of activities that lie between traditional areas and traditional disciplines. As a result, we provide a special environment both for faculty and students to forge not only new research ideas, but also new research directions. The main areas of current research focus are provided below, listing faculty members and research groups/centers conducting research in those areas (with links to individual/group web pages providing more details).
