The mission of the Computer Science Program is to be an exemplary program in a small, Land-Grant, flagship university. We strive for excellence in research, teaching and service that will be of benefit to our students, our profession, and for the people of the State of Maine. Researchers strive to gain national or international reputation and provide educational experiences for both graduate and undergraduate students in their research laboratories. Our faculty strives to provide excellent teaching to undergraduates and graduate students both in and out of the classroom. We believe that excellent teachers have high standards for students and give students the tools to meet those standards.
