Dean Yi Deng


From our position on the leading edge of computer and information science, Drexel University’s College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) instills the knowledge and skills necessary for our students to lead and innovate across industries in a rapidly evolving technological landscape. Our advanced, collaborative curriculum—led by our world-class faculty—works in tandem with our robust cooperative education program to ensure our students have the knowledge, the skills, and the practical experience to excel in their chosen fields.

Reflected in the interdisciplinary nature of our college, CCI is innovating computing and information science education and research for the 21st century and beyond. One of the few U.S. colleges that encompasses both the depth and breadth of computing and informatics—and the important interplay between those fields—under one roof, there is no institution in the region better poised to help you achieve your professional recruiting and engagement goals, and to help keep the very best talent working right here in Philadelphia.

Our brand new Corporate Partners Program has been built from the ground up to respond to the increasing demand for world class tech talent. Working closely with our partners, we will address important issues head on through the creation of a large-scale, sustainable and mutually beneficial ecosystem.

I hope you will join us as we redefine university and corporate engagement in response to today’s rapidly evolving information economy.
