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 recent years, the department has brought in $11 million in sponsored research, $440,000 per faculty member who received funding.
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:
|Secure & dependable software systems||Wireless sensor networks||High-performance computing|
|Programming languages||Medical record security||Temperature-aware electronics|
|Embedded computing||Fault analysis||Computational biology|
|Software engineering||Software assurance||Graphics and grid computing|
