CS Research

The computer science department at the University of Virginia attracts federal research support in excess of $6 million annually, with total external research funding of more than $7 million each year. In addition to excelling in traditional research areas within computer science, we believe that many important research challenges lie at the boundary of computer science and other disciplines. With exceptional strength in experimental systems and applied research, our researchers are blazing new trails in many areas including:

Architecture & High-Performance Computing


Machine Learning




Programming languages


Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet of Things (IoT), and Embedded Systems

Real-Time Systems

Cyber-social Systems
