Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences

Our Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences (CDS) is a transdisciplinary, degree-granting academic unit that lives outside the typical organization of a university into schools, divisions, and departments. As such, we transcend all disciplines, just as our emerging field now does. We are up and running, actively recruiting faculty, and moving in 2022 to a new state-of-the-art facility in the heart of the BU Campus. Learn more about what makes us unique.
