Many computer science departments were founded to meet the immediate computing needs of universities and local communities. Ours was founded with a broad research vision. Senior members of this department, including Professor Emeritus Tremblay, wrote some of the first computer science textbooks, a handful of which are still used worldwide.
Our faculty continues to contribute to world-renowned research endeavours, adding to the development and evolution of technology and Computer Science. They have been recognized for a number of accomplishments and awards. Our faculty and research staff take pride in teaching, research, and community involvement.
The Department of Computer Science has a number of research labs on campus, each of which excels at its own specialization within the field of Computer Science. These research labs reflect the technological vision and discovery of our faculty and researchers, and continue to keep us engaged, excited, and curious.
Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre (PIRC)
PIRC builds on the University of Saskatchewan's internationally-renowned food security strengths to drive transformative innovation in plant breeding that uses imaging and computer technology to digitize desired crop traits (phenotypes) and link them to specific genes - accelerating crop development.
