Research

The research efforts of the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences (CMNS) are the product of 5,000 undergraduate students, 1,500 graduate students, and a powerhouse complement of nearly 1,000 research and tenure-track faculty members. Collectively, these women and men translate their thirst for new knowledge into cutting-edge discoveries and innovations in mathematics and computer and natural science. In these efforts, we are generously supported by federal and corporate partners, who invest more than $150 million annually in our students and research. Given such support, every day we are ready and working and delivering the new science and technology needed to benefit our state, our nation and our world.

Welcome to our world of innovation and discovery!
