Shaping tomorrow every day

At the Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering, we see what tomorrow can be and we make it reality.

Our research covers a broad range of disciplines, from the highly technical to the highly social. Every day, our faculty work across these disciplines to advance and improve today’s tech-driven world, often with teams that include students. Our commitment to research encompasses the study of how students learn with faculty committed to the practice of teaching and learning as a scholarly pursuit.

Our newest collaboration, “Accelerating Imagination” brings together some of the university’s top researchers and resources in artificial intelligence, high-performance computing and data science to make IU the leading partner for human-centered artificial intelligence research, education and workforce development efforts that improve Indiana and the world. The initiative, is supported by an IU executive committee which includes Luddy’s Professor David Crandall and Dean Joanna Millunchick.
