The Institute is philanthropically endowed, dedicated to basic research and graduate education in computer science. It has degree-granting authority in the State of Illinois and has been awarded accreditation from The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
TTIC offers a graduate program leading to a doctorate in computer science, focusing primarily on theoretical computer science (algorithms and complexity), machine learning (and related AI applications), programming languages (and related areas such as formal verification and security) and scientific computing (including numerical analysis, numerical optimization, and signal processing).
TTIC is located in the Woodlawn neighborhod on the southern part of the University of Chicago campus.
