Computers and information science infiltrate all aspects of
our lives. Cornell Computing and Information Science (CIS) has been

Science, located in Bill and Melinda Gates Hall, is a model nationally recognized for an outward-looking cross-campus approach to computing and information.
global focus on tech jobs, CIS is experiencing a huge boom in student
enrollment. Since 2006, we have increased our CIS majors from 3,500 to
12,000 in 2015! Last year over 50% of undergraduate students at Cornell
took a course offered in CIS. Comprised of three academic departments
(computer science, information science, and statistical science), CIS
collaborates broadly research priorities including computational social
science, data science, and big data; ubiquitous health and wellness;
biodiversity and citizen science; digital arts and humanities;
technology and society; and computational health and sustainability.
