What others have said about our program:
"I am deeply impressed by the quality of faculty and students at UCD. UCD’s graduate program in Computer Science has made impressive progress."
"Berkeley Lab has seen tremendous value in its research relationship with the computer science department at UC Davis. ... UC Davis PhD students have been first-rate, and several have ultimately been hired at the lab as postdocs and scientists. ..."
What our graduates have said:
"Other things that appealed to me were having great people to work with, a wonderful culture to work in, and that I had a heck of a lot of fun. There's a sense of excitement and innovation at UC Davis that one may not appreciate without having seen what it's like at other places."
"I'd mention the excellent seminars available not only via the CS department, but from math, MIND, etc. I saw some really fascinating talks in the last few years. While we could always go more, Davis brings so many great speakers to campus."
“People show lots of respect when they know you have an MS/PhD from UCD.”
