students and 18 permanent faculty members. The school offers
undergraduate and graduate programs in computer science and software
engineering, as well as a combined-degree undergraduate program in
discrete mathematics and computer science. The doctoral program within
the School received its ministerial accreditation in 2009. Quoting from
the accreditation report on PhD studies from 2009 (http://www.ru.is/media/td/SCS_accreditation.pdf
School of Computer Science is "the strongest in Iceland" (p. 6) and its
research is "on a similar level to that of cutting-edge institutions
