The Department of Computer Science was founded on January 1, 1992 under the initiative of a group of professors from the Department of Mathematics "Guido Castelnuovo" with backgrounds from a variety of fields such as physics, engineering, and mathematics. Building on the scientific and mathematical backgrounds of the founders, the department became the first center in greater Rome dedicated to the study of theoretical and applied computer science.
Today the Department of Computer Science is a reference point for well-prepared students to jump into the evolving field of Information and Communications Technology.
The department is internationally recognized as a center of excellence in many of the most important current areas of research in Computer Science.
