About Us

The Villanova Department of Computing Sciences exists to support education and research across the broad spectrum of computing. The history of our department highlights the evolution of our vision and mission.  At the graduate level, we offer a Master's in Computer Science, a Master's in Software Engineering, and a fully online Certificate in Health Informatics.

We have 12 full time, tenured, faculty members, approximately 20 active adjunct faculty members, and 4 full time staff members. We have approximately 100 graduate students currently enrolled.  

Many of our graduate students take classes part time while working full time at local industry. Others attend full time and may be supported with assistantships.

Because web site technology and design is an important part of our discipline, the Department of Computing Sciences has created and separately maintains its own web site to 1)  provide a unique public face for the Department,  2) more in-depth information and 3)  to be a valuable source for student study, experience, and projects.
