Why Study At Brown CS?


At all levels, our remarkable students conduct cutting-edge research and combine technical strength with a great diversity of backgrounds. Our graduates have an outstanding record of innovation in academia and industry and maintain strong networking ties with each other. 

Students work with world-class faculty in several capacities, interacting with them through coursework, research projects, and theses, as well as contributing to instruction as teaching assistants.


Continued funding and support from Brown ensure our excellent resources: pleasant office space, quality computing equipment, several specialized labs, and an attractive building just a block away from numerous restaurants and shops.

We're conveniently located in Providence, Rhode Island, less than an hour from Boston and three hours from New York City. We've recently started compiling rave reviews of our home city's walkability, cultural attractions, and quality of life. 

We have a long tradition of strong industry partnership. Leading information technology organizations actively recruit Brown graduates, and many of them are members of our Industry Partners Program.pvd.jpg

Our interdisciplinary options enrich the educational experience, highlighting trends in the use of computation and exposing students to novel and fascinating problems.


We pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming place to a diverse population of students. Brown CS has multiple informal weekly gatherings and fields teams in several intramural sports. We have periodic picnics and celebrations and often organize games, bike rides, and other activities.
