Cornell University has long been a national leader in fusing technology education and research with other fields of study, such as statistics, sociology and economics. In 1999 Computing and Information Science was created to respond to the educational and scientific challenges of the information age. Since then, CIS has continued this leadership through its role in creating and collaborating with Cornell Tech, a groundbreaking graduate school focused on entrepreneurship and technology commercialization.
True to its founding mission to integrate computing into every discipline, CIS blurs the boundaries of the traditional college. It’s a place of radical collaboration where computer science thrives side-by-side with emerging fields like computational social science and human-centered design. From our work in human-computer interaction to computer-aided sustainable design, CIS has become emblematic of the broad collaborative ties between technological and non-technological disciplines at Cornell.cis.cornell.edu
