Welcome to the School of Computer Science and Information Technology

University College Cork has played a pivotal role in the development of computing. George Boole, first professor of mathematics at what was then Queen’s College Cork, developed the formal foundations of propositional logic, which underpins the hardware and software of all modern digital computers. The school’s ethos reflects this tradition, emphasising scientific development and exploitation of knowledge, fully integrated with teaching, public engagement, and practical application for the benefit of society and the wider economy.
