The national priority in education can be summed up in a four-letter acronym: STEM. And that’s understandable. A country’s proficiency in science, technology, engineering and mathematics is vital in generating economic growth, advancing scientific innovation and creating good jobs.
The department’s 21st biannual Career Development Workshop (CDW) saw a flood of students to the Reitz Union’s Grand Ballroom on Sept. 25, 2017. More than 860 students stopped by during the four-hour event. A mix of undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni interested working in computer science or engineering fields came to interview with 31 companies.
Stop by the Chamber Room on the ground floor of the Reitz Union on Thursday, Sept. 28, to listen to Davyeon Ross, co-founder and COO of DDSports Inc., share highlights of his professional, athletic and entrepreneurial journey, and the emotional highs and lows while navigating the roller coaster of entrepreneurship.
Hear Davyeon’s unique insight into building an exciting sports tech company while traveling from the West Indies throughout the US, Europe, Asia and Canada and key learnings from years of playing competitive and college basketball.

Recently accepted as a BRAID Affiliate, the UF Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering is working to increase diversity in computer science
Diversity makes the industry stronger. That’s why UF CISE excels in the number of women throughout our program. Want to learn more about our diversity? Come see us at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in booth 1942 on Oct. 4-6, 2017.
Safety first, right? That’s how most of us live our lives. That’s definitely how we set priorities in our department. Because whenever we turn on the news we see new threats with the potential to damage individuals and nations. At the UF Department of Computer & Information Science & Engineering, we’re paying attention. We’re playing hardball with some of the world’s biggest security challenges.
The faculty at the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity (FICS) Research has been chosen to receive the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) CyberCorps® Scholarship for Service (SFS) grant. Offered by the U.S.
