The School of Computer Science at the University of Central Florida has the oldest Ph.D. program in CS in the state of Florida. Last year, we graduated 10 Ph.D.'s and 25 Master's students, for a total tenure track or tenured faculty of 19 (which is well above the national average for graduate productivity per faculty member in our discipline). Additionally, we have graduated over 140 B.S. degrees in Computer Science last year.
We currently enjoy a lively research environment in Computer Science with the support of five funded NSF programs, two ONR programs, a large ARO multi-university multi-investigator program on distributed simulation, two programs funded by the U.S. Army Stricom, a program funded by NASA, and several programs funded by industry including Sun Microsystems, Cirent (Lucent), Harris, Oracle, DPT, Schwartz Electro-Optics, Real 3D, and others.
Students in the International Graduate Honors Program can conduct research in areas such as Simulation (Profs. Bassiouni, Guha, Hughes, Moshell, Gelenbe, Mukherjee), Databases and Multimedia (Profs. Hua, Lang, Orooji), Software Engineering (Prof. Workman), Parallel Processing & Algorithmics (Profs. Dutton and Deo), Computer Networks (Profs. Bassiouni, Gelenbe), Genetic Algorithms (Profs. Parsons and Wu), Image & Text Processing (Profs. Gelenbe and Mukherjee), Graphics and Virtual Reality (Profs. Hughes, Moshell, Guha), Computer Vision (Profs. Lobo and Shah), Neural Networks and Computational Neuroscience (Profs. Favorov and Gelenbe), Artificial Intelligence (Profs. Gomez, Wu, Gelenbe), VLSI & FPGA Architecture (Prof. Mukherjee).
