About CS|Source

Commit. Connect. Collaborate.

Driven to serve, the faculty, students, and stakeholders in the Department of Computer Science at Virginia Tech (CS@VT) are committed to responsibly addressing globally significant socio-technical issues, pursuing complex research challenges, reimagining computing to reflect its ubiquitous impact on society, and working across disciplines to help individuals and communities thrive.

To enable this vision, CS@VT is committed to cultivating a supportive and engaged community that reflects the world we serve. We acknowledge the essential collaborations with external stakeholders in shaping curricular and co-curricular programming for our students to ensure they are well-prepared to enter the workforce with the necessary skills and knowledge to spearhead innovation and tackle complex challenges.

CS|Source, the department’s membership-based program, seeks to develop lasting relationships with our partners in all aspects of industry.
