Why Come To GU?

Graduate education in computer science 

Now is the time

Georgetown University’s Department of Computer Science is a premier destination for research and education. We have eighteen full-time faculty working in the areas of algorithms, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics, computer and network security, cryptography, database systems, data mining, distributed algorithms, human-computer interaction, information assurance, information retrieval, machine learning, networking, parallel algorithms, systems, theory, and visual analytics. Because of our small size, we provide considerable opportunity for interaction with faculty through independent studies, research, and social events. We are a student-centric department that focuses on providing students with a rich education and a wide range of job prospects after graduation. Being in the heart of Washington, DC also gives our students a strong quality of life and opportunities to engage in public and private sector internships, local computing groups, and regional events.
