About CDS

The Faculty of Computing & Data Sciences (CDS) is a University-wide, degree-granting academic unit comprising a community of scholars in core and applied areas of computing, computational, and data-driven inquiry who engage in multidisciplinary collaborations across academic disciplines at Boston University.

Founded in 2019 and housed in an iconic 19-story building to be completed in 2022, CDS complements and connects various academic disciplines through the language of computation and data. In support of the University’s strategic goals, CDS is laying the foundation for promoting societally-minded computing through thematically-driven Impact Hubs that act as catalysts for maximizing the real-world impact of its research, curricular, and cocurricular programs—most notably on issues of Equity, Sustainability, Health, and Civic Tech.

Welcome to the future.
