About Drexel CCI

The College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) contributes to theory and practice along dimensions that include technical, human, organizational, policy and societal considerations. This broad perspective positions the College to address the complex, multi-disciplinary problems that are increasingly common as society becomes more dependent on information technology.

CCI is home to one of the oldest continually ALA-accredited library and information science programs in the country: the MS in Library and Information Science program. The College is a founding member of the iSchools Caucus of 29 prominent colleges dedicated to advancing the information field in the 21st Century.

Currently, CCI administrative offices, labs and classrooms are located in the following facilities: the Rush Building, University Crossings, and 3401 Market Street (click here to view Drexel University's main campus map).

In March 2019, CCI is excited to move into a state-of-the-art building bringing all of our students, faculty, and professional staff together under one roof. Located at 3675 Market Street, CCI will occupy the 10th and 11th floors in the brand new uCity Square building.

History 

CCI was founded in 2013 as a response to the growing role of computing and informatics in all sectors of the economy. A rich, cohesive academic program contributes to the development of the local innovation community while strengthening links to regional industry, government and not-for-profit entities.

The creation of the College combined the strengths and assets of many of Drexel's undergraduate, graduate, and professional computing and informatics programs. Specifically, the College unites the former College of Information Science & Technology (the iSchool); the Department of Computer Science (from the College of Engineering); and the Computing and Security Technology program (formerly housed in the Goodwin College School of Technology and Professional Studies).
