Partner with friends, colleagues, and faculty from across campus to build impressively cool systems, experiences, and computationally-augmented objects.

Immerse yourself in game design, virtual and mixed reality, web, mobile, machine learning, recommendation systems, artificial intelligence, computer vision, robotics, geographic information systems, and more. 

World-Class Faculty

Our faculty hail from some of the best academic institutions and produce amazing, top-tier research. Step up your game: the focus of this expertise is YOU.

You’ll learn from us in a friendly environment where everyone is welcome, where you’ll get to know us by our first names, where you can drop by at any time to say hello, and where we’ll always be on your team, challenging you to grow and find your way.

Cutting Edge Resources

From your very first semester on campus, you’ll have access to our our virtual reality lab, 3D laser scanners, our state-of-the-art 3D printing lab, and professional software development tools for virtually any project, design, or idea.

Engage in serious, challenging study through faculty-student research collaborations, summer research stipends, conference travel, projects, and student run clubs like our Ithaca Developer’s Environment (IDE) club, the Women in Computing (WIC) club, the IC Game Developer’s club, and the computer science honor society Upsilon Pi Epsilon.

Exceptional Career Opportunities

Our graduates intern and work at places like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Blizzard, Linux Red Hat, EA Games, the MIT Lincoln Lab, Bungie, IBM’s Watson Lab, Dassault Systèmes, University of Maryland, and more.

We’ll help you chart a path that takes you where you want to go.

News: Ithaca College Computer Science Professors Awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) Grants, Summer 2019

Prof. Sharon Stansfield was awarded an NSF I-Corps grant to explore commercialization of the WeeBot, a robotic mobility device designed to provide mobility to infants and toddlers with conditions that limit independent mobility. 

Prof. Doug Turnbull was awarded a four-year, collaborative NSF research grant titled, Counterfactual Learning and Evaluation for Interactive Information Systems. The research at IC explores how we can use recommender systems to promote music by local artists. 

Prof. John Barr was awarded an NSF grant that will be used in support of S-STEM scholarships to recruit and retain low-income, academically talented computer science, mathematics, or physics students. This grant will serve a total of 14 students (two cohorts of 7) over a five year period.
