The College of Computing and Information prepares UAlbany students to succeed in the information-rich world they live in and, through our research, we help create that world.

Announcement: CCI Establishes Department of Computer Engineering

The College of Computing and Information has established a Department of Computer Engineering. Final approvals for the curriculum are in progress through the governance processes. Once approved, students earning an undergraduate degree in the department will integrate concepts from engineering, mathematics, computer science and physics to learn how to design, build and operate systems with integrated digital hardware and computer software components. The degree will provide access to careers in hardware, software and systems engineering in industry, government, and academic sectors.

For more information, please contact Ann Marie Murray at amurray2@albany.edu or 518-956-8031.

The department is in the process of recruiting a chair and faculty. Please see our Employment Opportunities page for more information.

Department of Computer Science

Students here learn about algorithms (a set of rules for computations) and the problems they might solve. Computer Science leads to careers in programming, systems analysis, network administration, database development, security analysis, IT, software engineering, and more.

Department of Informatics

Informatics courses enhance all disciplines at UAlbany by introducing multiple technology skills. Careers could include web developer/designer, information assurance and cybersecurity professional, database administrator, and others.

Department of Information Studies

Students here learn how information is created, organized, represented, stored, retrieved, and used. Careers could include information technology specialist, librarian, archivist, school library media specialist, network or database administrator, and more.

UAlbany Uses 3D Technology to Create Prosthetic Hands for Children

When sophomore computer science major Elliott Weintraub heard from Department of Informatics lecturer Jonathan Muckell about the opportunity to build a 3D prosthetic hand for a child, he jumped at the chance. The department began the project in the fall semester and accelerated it to complete hands for four children by the holidays.
