In light of rising student interest in artificial intelligence, Computer Science faculty members at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences are looking toward SEAS’s upcoming expansion into Allston as a means of growing their program.
As the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences prepares to expand into the new Science and Engineering Complex in Allston — which is slated to open in June 2020 — current and prospective SEAS concentrators are largely conflicted about the expansion.
The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences’ new Science and Engineering Complex in Allston — which officially opens in June 2020 — will house several collaborative spaces designed to bring together students across the University, Dean of SEAS Francis J. Doyle III said in an interview Monday.
Milind Tambe has joined the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences’ Computer Science faculty as a tenured professor this fall and will head the Center for Research on Computation and Society at SEAS.
Marianna K. Linz ’11 has returned to Harvard this fall as an assistant professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and will serve as one of only two female faculty members in the field.
Two graduate students at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences have created a peer-to-peer support network for graduate students, which launched at the beginning of this academic year.
Embedded EthiCS — an interdisciplinary initiative between the Computer Science and Philosophy departments — will receive a $150,000 grant after being named a winner in the 2019 Responsible Computer Science Challenge last week.
