More About Our Department


The Center for Innovation in Computing Education and Outreach (CompEdCenter) was officially founded in early 2018. The main goals of the CompEdCenter are to bring together all of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) efforts, innovative course management tools, and the many years of experience of the UVA computing faculty to enhance our impact at UVA, in Virginia, and around the world.

Cyber technology has become pervasive and indispensable. Humans interact with cyber systems to conduct many of the tasks of their day-to-day lives. As cyber technology advances and the Internet of Everything becomes reality, it is critical that these systems are secure and that they operate for the benefit of humankind.
