The CS Department provides excellent work spaces and systems for graduate students. PhD students have individual workstations within their research labs as well as access to collaborative meeting rooms. Masters students have unlimited access (open 24 hours a day, seven days a week) to a state-of-the-art laboratory designed to allow them to work individually on homework assignments or as part of project teams. All work spaces have whiteboard walls for writing out ideas.

Most PhD students in the department are fully supported by fellowships, research assistantships, or teaching assistantships. Graduate students with a minimum 3.0 GPA are invited to apply for work as course assistants (CAs) within the department. Payrates vary from $9.00-15.00 per hour; several head TA positions funded at $3K/course are available for experienced CAs each semester.
