Chair, Information and Computer Sciences

POST 317

Welcome to the Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) Department at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa. I am pleased to serve as Department Chair alongside such a diverse, dedicated, and productive faculty.

Computer science is currently one of the fastest growing, and certainly one of the most exciting, scientific and technical fields. Half of all STEM occupations are computing-related. Computing frontiers such as artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, and quantum computing are posing fascinating new questions. Of course, there is also the fun stuff like gaming and computer animation, and the challenging stuff like social media, autonomous systems, and security and privacy.

If you are considering computer science as a field of study, I invite you to learn more about our department, explore our academic offerings, look at some our student and alumni profiles, and examine the bios of our faculty. We hope you will then choose to begin your computing-related career with us.
