We're now a School of Computer Science

From 1st January 2019 we are now a School of Computer Science, which is the university’s way of recognising our size and complexity. We are the largest academic unit in the Faculty of Science (by number of students, comprising around 1400 EFTS). We manage seven undergraduate degrees (in Computer Science, Data Science, Information Systems, Logic and Computation, and Computational Biology – and also teach into Software Engineering). We manage nine postgraduate degrees (in Computer Science, Data Science, Digital Security, and Information Technology). We are home to the Auckland ICT Graduate School and its associated Microstrategy Centre of Excellence. We have 54 academic staff including 10 professors and 7 associate professors. We have three formal research centres (Cyber Security Foundry, Centre for Computational Evolution, and Centre for Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science). We celebrate being made a school, recognising Computer Science as a very large and diverse part of the university with great strengths and expertise across the major fields of Computer Science.
