The Center for Information & Systems Engineering (CISE) cultivates interaction among BU researchers speaking the same technical language across diverse application domains. Boston University has a robust community of information and systems engineering researchers, spanning many schools, colleges, and departments. At CISE, 46 faculty members and over 100 graduate students take an interdisciplinary approach to the study and design of such intelligent systems. Collectively, their work promises to improve the quality of our lives considerably. The center fosters collaboration between faculty and students from across Boston University with interests in information and systems engineering.
