The University of Texas at Austin's Department of Computer Science (UTCS) is forging a bright digital future for Texas by building a strong interdisciplinary computing facility in the heart of the UT campus. The Bill & Melinda Gates Computer Science Complex is the first step in the department's plan to transform computing education and research in Texas. The realization of our vision allows UTCS to pursue key goals that can ultimately ensure a regionally robust and secure digital future.
The Department of Computer Science's outreach initiatives share the excitement of the field of computer science with K-12 students across Texas.
We are the largest top-10 CS department in the United States. The closest other top-10 CS department is about 1,000 miles away. Our undergraduates are active participants in all aspects of department life, including our world-class research program. In the last few years, we've seen undergraduate research projects in areas such as autonomous vehicles, optimizing compilers, computer security, automated debugging and verification, bioinformatics, reinforcement learning, and machine vision.
