UMPI’s Computer Science program is known for its state-of-the-art research and innovation activities. Students in the program will have the opportunity to participate in such research in collaboration with faculty. Program faculty conduct research in the areas of big data, deep learning, artificial intelligence, machine learning, biomedical engineering, geology and mine engineering, bioinformatics, and financial engineering. For example, Dr. Rafiul Hassan’s latest research is on ransomware predictions and using artificial intelligence to make COVID-19 predictions.
Dr. Hassan has three U.S. patents published and has had peer reviewed publications in a wide range of journals, including the Journal of Computational and Theoretical Nanoscience, Applied Soft Computing, Neurocomputing, and Computers in Biology and Medicine.
