College of Computing & Informatics
The College of Computing & Informatics provides a focal point for the broad range of inquiry related to computation and information. The College addresses both theory and practice along dimensions that include technical, human, organizational, policy, and societal considerations. This broad expertise positions the College’s education and research programs to address the complex, multi-disciplinary problems that are increasingly common as society becomes ever more dependent on information technology.
Founded in fall 2013 by Dean David E. Fenske, the College unites the faculty, staff, and students from the former College of Information Science and Technology (the iSchool), the Department of Computer Science from the College of Engineering and the Department of Computing and Security Technology from Goodwin College of Professional Studies.

About the College
The College of Computing & Informatics (CCI) offers undergraduate majors in computer science, informatics, information systems, information technology and software engineering both as four and five-year programs, and an online degree completion program in computing & security technology. The degree programs are open to freshmen and transfers from other departments at Drexel and other universities. Students have access to the computing facilities available to all Drexel students.
The College educates professionals through its interdisciplinary programs to meet a wide range of needs in the computing and informatics fields to benefit all sectors of society.
Transfer admission for traditional undergraduate programs occurs in the fall term only due to the sequence of required courses. Internal transfer students can be admitted at any term. Admission to the BS online completion program in computing & security technology is offered on a rolling basis. Please contact an undergraduate advisor for more information.
Cooperative education emphasizes career management through experiential learning as an integral part of the education process. The co-op is based on employment in practical, major-related positions consistent with the interests, abilities, and aptitudes of the students.
