PRECISE will significantly strengthen the current research environment
in Computing and Information Science and Engineering (CISE) at the UPR
making it more diverse, competitive, and sustainable. It will help in
implementing the Ph.D. CISE model as an academic program.
To facilitate, enhance and strengthen research in CISE while increasing
the participation of women and minorities through a program that could
become a national model.
