Founded as a department in 1968, information and computer science became the first computer science school in the University of California System in December 2002.

As an independent school focused solely on the computer and information sciences, the Bren School has a unique perspective on the information technology disciplines that allows it a broad foundation from which to build educational programs and research initiatives that explore the many applications of the computing discipline; from circuits and systems to software engineering and human aspects of computing.
