Welcome to the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science
The Cheriton School of Computer Science is named for David R. Cheriton, who earned his PhD in Computer Science in 1978, and made a transformational gift to the school in 2005. It has become the largest academic concentration of Computer Science researchers in Canada.

According to a recent article in U.S. News and World Report, salaries for those in computer-related occupations — especially for people who hold a graduate degree in the field — are rising because of a shortage in technological workers across many sectors of the economy.
In fact, a recent graduate with a master’s degree in computer science often earns more than a recent MBA grad. Experts say that’s because computer science-related jobs are projected to grow even more in the next few years.

Can we provably immunize protocols against coordinated attacks on the internet? Can we verify that computation is performed correctly while preserving the privacy of underlying data? Can we enable mutually distrusting participants to securely compute on distributed private data?
These are some of the core challenges that lie at the heart of modern cryptography and secure protocol design.
