The department offers several facilities aimed towards servicing students, faculty, the IT profession, and the community. We have two Centers of Research and various research laboratories actively engaged in solving problems within the fields of Cyber Security, Bioinformatics, Machine Learning, Environmental Informatics, Artificial Intelligence, and Game Development. Additionally, we maintain and operate several instructional labs that offer students open access to powerful workstations equipped with industry/professional software environments.
CS Centers of Research
The UNO Computer Science department hosts two Centers of Research approved by the Louisiana Board of Regents. These Research Centers are tasked by the State to investigate and address problems in the fields of Cyber Security and Environmental Informatics.
CS Research Laboratories
The Computer Science department contains several well-funded, research laboratories, run by our faculty, dedicated to progressing the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Game Development, Machine Learning, Bioinformatics, and Software Engineering.
CS Instructional Laboratories
Our instructional computer labs are used to provide practical hands-on training to supplement the material lectured within the classroom. These systems are pre-configured with the necessary software for each of the classes taught in the curriculum. These labs are typically open and available 24/7 to UNO students registered in Computer Science classes.
Super Computing Cluster
The Louisiana Optical Network Initiative, or LONI, is a state-of-the-art, fiber optics network that runs throughout Louisiana, and connects Louisiana research universities to one another–allowing greater collaboration on research that produces results faster and with greater accuracy. LONI provides Louisiana researchers with one of the most advanced optical networks in the country and the most powerful distributed supercomputer resources available to any academic community with over 85 teraflops of computational capacity.
