Why UCR?

I am looking for self-motivated and reliable PhD students with solid programming skills.

  • According to CS Rankings, UCR is ranked No. 16 among U.S. universities (as of Sep 2020) in computer system as a whole, covering computer architecture, high-performance computing, security, networking, databases, programming language, software engineering, among others.

  • UCR is located in Riverside, a historic city noted for its palm-lined avenues and its mild climate. Riverside is about 55 miles east of Los Angeles and 75 miles north of San Diego, which means living in Riverside is both afforadable and convenient. There are also big mountains nearby for hiking and winter sports, and beautiful beaches for enjoying the summer and water sports.
