Computer Science and Engineering is a component of Encyclopedia of Technology, Information, and Systems Management Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

The Theme on Computer Science and Engineering provides the essential aspects and fundamentals of Hardware Architectures, Software Architectures, Algorithms and Data Structures, Programming Languages and Computer Security. It is aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers.

Zainalabedin Navabi is a professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Tehran, and an adjunct professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Dr. Navabi is the author of several textbooks and computer based trainings on VHDL, Verilog and related tools and environments. Dr. Navabi’s involvement with hardware description languages begins in 1976, when he started the development of a register-transfer level simulator for one of the very first HDLs. In 1981 he completed the development of a synthesis tool that generated MOS layout from an RTL description. Since 1981, Dr. Navabi has been involved in the design, definition and implementation of Hardware Description Languages. He has written numerous papers on the application of HDLs in simulation, synthesis and test of digital systems. He started one of the first full HDL courses at Northeastern University in 1990. Since then he has conducted many short courses and tutorials on this subject in the United States, Europe and Asia. Since early 1990’s he has been involved in developing, producing, and broadcasting online and video lectures on HDLs, Digital System Test, and various aspects of automated design. In addition to being a professor, he is also a consultant to CAE companies. Dr. Navabi received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in 1978 and 1981, and his B.S. from the University of Texas at Austin in 1975. He is a senior member of IEEE, a member of IEEE Computer Society, member of ASEE, and ACM.

Kaeli received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Rutgers University in 1992. He received his M.S. in Computer Engineering from Syracuse University in 1985 and a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rutgers University in 1981. He has a courtesy appointment in the College of Computer and Information Science at Northeastern, and a honorary professorship from City University of London, UK. For the 2001-2002 academic year he spent a year as a Visiting Professor at the Departament of d'Arquitectura de Computadors at the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya. Prior to joining Northeastern, Dr. Kaeli spent 12 years working at IBM and IBM Research.
