Jeannette Marie Wing (born c. 1957) is the President's Professor of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. She also served as assistant director for Computer and Information Science and Engineering at the NSF from 2007 to 2010.
She earned her S.B. and S.M. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT in June 1979. Her advisors were Ronald Rivest and John Reiser. In 1983, she earned her Ph.D. in Computer Science at MIT under John Guttag. She was on the faculty of the University of Southern California from 1982 to 1985 and has been on the faculty of Carnegie Mellon ever since. She served as the head of the Computer Science Department from 2004 to 2007 and from 2010 to 2012.
She has also been a strong promoter of computational thinking, expressing the algorithmic problem solving and abstraction techniques used by computer scientists, and how these ideas might be applicable to other disciplines.

- Journal of the ACM,
- Formal Aspects of Computing (North American Editor),
- Formal Methods in System Design,
- International Journal of Software and Informatics,
- Journal of Information Science and Engineering,
