UW-Madison’s single biggest major is Computer SciencesLearn why that matters to you at Feb. 28 luncheon

From producing graduates who are ready for today’s tech-oriented jobs to spinning off young companies to working with companies on research projects, the UW-Madison Department of Computer Sciences is one of the university’s fastest-growing assets.

Part of the UW-Madison School of Computer, Data and Information Sciences, the department is home to about 2,200 undergraduate majors – a growing number that prompted the start of construction on a new campus home near the Discovery Building. Privately funded, the building will also house the Center for High Throughput Computing, the American Family Insurance Data Science Institute and the Department of Biostatistics & Medical Informatics.

Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau, chair of the computer sciences department and a 2023 fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science will speak; others will be announced.

“In addition to its growing number of graduates, its contributions to the startup economy and its work with Wisconsin industry, the Comp Sci department is also working to provide basic courses to other majors,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council, who will moderate.
