School of Computing


Welcome to the School of Computing at Clemson University. Clemson’s School of Computing was formed from the Department of Computer Science in 2007 with a vision to be a national leader in the definition and advancement of emerging academic fields in computing through the development of successful divisions that integrate computation with the arts, sciences, and engineering. The School of Computing is key to the College of Engineering and Science’s mission of preparing students for all aspects of computing and as part of a university wide emphasis on information technology and high performance computing. We provide a diverse and rich educational environment in many areas of computing while also maintaining nationally prominent research programs in selected focus areas.

The School has three primary academic divisions: computer science, visual computing, and human-centered computing.

  • Computer Science offers students the opportunity for classroom study and research in the underlying theory of computation, algorithms, software engineering, cyberinfrastructure, computer systems, and other core areas of traditional computer science.
  • Visual Computing offers students the opportunity for classroom study and research in computer graphics, visualization, computer vision and image processing, and in various electronic arts such as game design, special effects, and animation.
  • Human-Centered Computing (HCC) is our newest division. HCC is an emerging field focused on understanding how to make computational technologies more useable and how computational technologies affect society.

Currently we offer seven degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate level.

This is a great time to be in computing! According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of computer and information research scientists is projected to grow 15 percent from 2012 to 2022, faster than the average for all occupations. Computer scientists are likely to enjoy excellent job prospects, because many companies report difficulties finding these highly skilled workers.
