Computing Science Computer Science Systems and Control Visual Information and Interaction Department of Information Technology About 10% of the Faculty of Science and Technology About 4% of the University Scientific Computing
Short Facts 239 employees 103 faculty, including 28 full professors of which several have industrial background and connections to the industry 101 PhD students 24 administrator and 11 system administrators 152 PhD and 114 Licentiate degrees Turnover 2012: 215 MSEK, (1/3 teaching, 2/3 research)
The IT Department is The fourth largest department at Uppsala University The most complete department: –in Uppsala (balance between education and research) –in Sweden (unice coverage of IT)
Undergraduate Education 4000 students each year (about 1000 full time students) Participation in about 30 study programs, a total of 150 courses starts per academic year. Single subject courses, distance courses, summer courses and web based courses. Everything from introductory courses for beginners to specialist courses. 200 computer work stations for the students. The Department received “The Undergraduate Education Department of the Year” Award 2009 by the Student Union. Six teachers at the department have received the ”Pedagogical Award” (Pedagogiska priset) given by Uppsala University.
Research Computer Systems Computing Science Scientific Computing Systems and Control Visual Information and Interaction Computing Education Research
The IT Department hosts: Research Centres –UPMARC (Uppsala Programming for Multicore Architectures) , a Linnaeus center funded by the Swedish Research Council. Total budget: 100 million SEK. –WISENET (Uppsala Center for Wireless Sensor Networks) A center of Excellence funded by Vinnova. Total budget: 210 million SEK. –eSSENCE – a national collaboration in e-science. 26 MSEK/year. SNIC (Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing), is under the Swedish Science Council a metacentre whose task is to coordinate and develop high end computing capacity for Swedish research. UPPMAX (Uppsala Multidisciplinary Center for Advanced Computational Science), which is Uppsala University's center for high performance computing.
Citations from external evaluations (KoF07 & KoF11) The friendly atmosphere and the cohesiveness that prevails at the Information Technology Department have been mentioned by several members. The panel believes that such friendly atmosphere is indeed a valuable and rather unique asset that undoubtedly contributes to the quality of the work performed at the department.... world-class quality... world leading... internationally recognized
Impact Our graduated students and PhDs are much appreciated in industry and academia. Several high tech spin-offs: Skype, Acumem, Trade Extensions, OptiMobile, Wisenet Holding Collaboration with several major Swedish companies: Ericsson, ABB, Scania, Volvo… Future systems for train traffic control in Sweden is based on HCI research. Extensive academic collaboration nationally and internationally.
