Princeton has been at the forefront of computing since Alan Turing, Alonzo Church, and John von Neumann were among its residents. The department, now in a period of major growth, has strong groups in artificial intelligence and machine learning, theory, programming languages, graphics and vision, systems and networking, computer architecture, computational biology and neuroscience, security, privacy, and information technology policy.
The Department of Mathematics offers undergraduate and graduate degrees. The graduate program differentiates itself from other top mathematics institutions in that the curriculum emphasizes, from the start, independent research. The department embodies a real sense of camaraderie and an atmosphere of excitement and stimulation as well as of mentoring and support.
