  • CSE 145: Making Biofuel from Algae

    CSE Prof. Ryan Kastner says the goal of CSE 145 is to teach students to build an embedded computing system. Students also learn the fundamentals of microcontrollers, such as Arduino and Beagle Bone Black, sensors and actuators, and they are introduced to end-to-end system building and the hardware and software tools they will need to build a project in a team environment.

  • Keeping Track of Time in Cyber-Physical Systems

    CSE chair and professor Rajesh Gupta (pictured top right with other PIs on the Roseline project) is leading the UC San Diego component of a five-university effort that has received a five-year, $4-million NSF Frontier award to tackle the challenge of time in cyber-physical systems (CPS) -- engineered systems that are built from and depend upon the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components.

  • 2014 Excellence Award to CSE Tutor Behind Internet Sensation

    On June 14, graduating senior Kirsten Koa will receive the Computer Science and Engineering Department’s 2014 Excellence Award, given annually by CSE’s advisors and faculty. Koa will accept the glass award from Jacobs School of Engineering Dean Al Pisano during the eighth annual Ring Ceremony at 8:15pm on Warren Mall, organized by the Triton Engineering Student Council (TESC).

  • 5K Race Forges Bonds Among CSE Alumni, Faculty, Staff and Students

    CSE alumni, students, staff and faculty turned out in force to run, walk or just cheer on CSE’s main team, Overclocked CSE Enthusiasts, entered in the Chancellor's 5K run June 8 during UC San Diego’s Alumni Weekend 2014.

  • Wearable Augmented-Reality Solution for Color Blindness

    In September, CSE research scientist and lecturer Nadir Weibel will present a joint paper with students and a colleague in one of the most prestigious – and competitive – conferences on ubiquitous computing.

  • Getting Girls into Coding

    A spinoff company incubated in CSE is getting more publicity – this time in the New York Times.

  • High-Performing High School Student Is UCSD Bound... with a Little Help from Google

    Aswini Krishnan is a graduating senior from American High School in Fremont, CA, who is headed for UC San Diego in the fall. She is among a select group of students to be awarded $10,000 Generation Google Scholarships for the 2014-15 academic year. While she is set to enroll in the bioengineering department, Krishnan will focus on computer science and bioinformatics. She became interested in computer science in elementary school.

  • CSE Ph.D. Student Receives Best Paper Award and UC President's Fellowship Award

    Computer scientists at UC San Diego and Microsoft Research have developed a system that combines a mobile application and sensor to detect stress in parents and delivers research-based strategies to help decrease that stress during emotionally charged interactions with their children. CSE Ph.D.

  • CSE Ranks #13 Among Best Computer Science Graduate Programs

    The website has come up with a list of the 20 "best graduate programs in computer science," and the University of California, San Diego made the list at #13. The rankings are based on several weighted factors, including academic excellence, course offerings, faculty accomplishments, return on investment, and reputation.

  • Computer Scientists Develop Tool to Make the Internet of Things Safer

    Computer scientists at UC San Diego have developed a tool that allows hardware designers and system builders to test security—a first for the field. One of the tool’s potential uses is described in the May-June issue of IEEE Micro magazine. “The stakes in hardware security are high,” said Ryan Kastner, a professor of computer science at UC San Diego's Jacobs School of Engineering.
