The department of computer science is based in the University of Denver’s School of Engineering and Computer Science. The school reflects two of the university’s strongest traditions: academic integrity and a commitment to meeting student needs with dynamic new programs. We are strong in research and particularly noted in software engineering, information security and privacy, and humane gaming.
