The Department of Computer Sciences is among the oldest and top-ranked computer science departments in the world, renowned for its groundbreaking research in several areas of computer science. The department has a strong track record of support of transformative research and building large-scale computing infrastructures, such as HTCondor and CloudLab, and of interdisciplinary collaborations, programs, and centers, including the Wisconsin Institutes of Discovery (WID). The department has also been the beneficiary of significant donations aimed at supporting its research and educational mission.
The new School of Computer, Data & Information Sciences (CDIS) is a significant resource for the Department of Computer Sciences to strengthen its interdisciplinary and cross-campus research collaborations, to establish new, innovative educational programs in the intersection of computing and other domains, and to promote engagement with high-impact, real-world challenges that can be addressed through computing. The construction of a new innovative building for CDIS, which will be the new home of the Department of Computer Sciences, was recently started, and can be seen at: https://cdis.wisc.edu/building-future/.
Located at the nexus of four beautiful lakes, Madison, the capital of the state of Wisconsin and home to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, consistently ranks among the top American cities for its quality of life. With the headquarters of medical software company Epic, Microsoft’s Jim Gray Systems Lab, Google, and several other technology giants in the area, as well as a strong startup ecosystem, Madison is also among the fastest growing technology hubs in the country.

Center for High Throughput Computing
If advancing the state of the art of distributed computing in an academic environment interests you, the Center for High Throughput Computing (CHTC) at the University of Wisconsin–Madison (UW) offers a unique working environment. Our project’s home is in the UW Department of Computer Sciences, an internationally recognized department consistently ranked in the top ten across the USA. A position with CHTC will provide you the opportunity to interact with both department faculty and students to translate novel ideas into real-world solutions. The software and infrastructure you will be working on is used by scientists and engineers at hundreds of institutions, from universities to national laboratories and from large high tech corporations to small animation teams.
Madison and UW Information and Resources
The School of Computer, Data & Information Sciences launched in September 2019 as a new division within the College of Letters & Science. It is a collaboration of three longstanding, highly regarded L&S units: the departments of Computer Sciences and Statistics and the Information School (iSchool).
From Bascom Hill to Picnic Point, we invite you to explore our campus, inside and out. Discover dinosaur bones and bug collections, art museums and athletic facilities. Tour our ice cream–making facility and enjoy a tasty treat.
This resource is provided by the Women in Science & Engineering Leadership Institute (WISELI), whose mission is to increase representation and advancement of women and members of groups currently underrepresented on campus.
UW–Madison’s guiding philosophy is The Wisconsin Idea: Education, and specifically UW–Madison, should benefit the lives of all the citizens of Wisconsin, beyond the borders of the university.
The Wisconsin Computing Idea holds that computing is critical to our university and the state, that UW–Madison will take decisive and bold actions to lead the computing revolution, and that advances in computing on this campus will benefit all corners of our great state.
