Dean's Corner

Welcome to the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems Web pages!  We hope that you will spend some time here to get acquainted with our diverse student body, our award winning faculty, and the innovative programs that we offer. This includes the newly developed Master of Science in Enterprise Analytics program that provides the opportunity to apply emerging analytics across many disciplines.
 
At the Seidenberg School you will have the opportunity to study with faculty who are doing research in fields such as cybersecurity, robotics, speech and handwriting recognition, and social networking.
 
Our school is one of the first schools of Computer Science and Information Systems in the country.  It is named in honor of Ivan G. Seidenberg, former Chairman and CEO of Verizon Communications, Inc. who generously supported the School with the largest gift ever given to Pace University, and for whom the school is named.
 
Recently on June 22, 2015, we recognized two distinguished innovators and mentors: President and COO at GE Capital, Thomas Gentile, and President of Tata Consultancy Services Limited, Surya Kant. The Leadership and Service in Technology (LST) award aims to recognize those who have made outstanding achievements in technology by demonstrating their commitment to development, innovation, research, and application within the field. It is the involvement and contributions from luminaries like them and their organizations that sustains the school and helps to prepare our students for rewarding careers in tech. Their involvement and inspiring stories helps us aim for success even more.
 
Whatever your interest in technology, you will find faculty with whom to study, students with whom to work, and courses that prepare you to meet the challenges of the 21st century workplace. By joining Seidenberg, you will become part of a community of students that provide support and friendship to one another throughout their university careers and beyond.
 
It is my pleasure to welcome you.   Look through these pages to learn more about the opportunities that await you here at the Seidenberg School, where we are “keeping Pace with the future” – and the future is technology.
