We Engineer Excellence

Overview of Research Centers

  • Center for Research and Education in Cyber Security and Privacy (CRESP): We seek to be a premier center for cybersecurity, designing novel approaches to building secure systems and enabling them to detect and tolerate attacks. We also seek to prepare talented engineers and researchers with the technical and problem solving skills in this area of national need. Our research areas span the full range of computer security and privacy.
  • Data Science Center: The Data Science Center supports interdisciplinary collaboration at UCR between research groups that generate data and research groups that analyze data. Research groups in the biology, economics, engineering, physics, and political science departments run experiments that generate gigabytes, terabytes, or exabytes of data. Analyzing these large scale datasets requires specialized knowledge, and researchers in the computer science and statistics departments work together with researchers in these applied fields to analyze their data. We use large scale machine learning, data mining, and database techniques.
  • Center for Geospatial Sciences: The Center for Geospatial Sciences is a source of innovation in geographical information science, open source tools development for the implementation of advanced methods in spatial analysis, and the application and dissemination of training in advanced geospatial analysis and data science.
