The Turing Lab for Graduate Studies is mainly sponsored with funds obtained through a proposal submitted to PRIDCO in 2003. These funds have been used to support research at the graduate level and to obtain incentives to attract and retain PhD faculty in the Computer Science and Engineering areas. These funds are also used to establish two graduate programs: The Master in Computer Engineering (MS CpE) and the Master in Computer Science (MS CS). The MS CpE program started in August, 2004. The MS CS proposal is currently under evaluation to be submitted to the Council of Higher Education of Puerto Rico. The MS CS will be the first to be offered in PR. These funds have been used to buy modern computers and workstations that provide the infrastructure needed for this lab and the new graduate programs. The Principal Investigator (PI) of this proposal is Dr. Alfredo Cruz, working with the Co-PI’s Dr. Edheberto Leal, Dr. Román López and Department Director, Professor Pérez Bracetti.
