Week with Women is a weeklong extravaganza hosted by WiCS to bring all UT Computer Science students together and have some fun while supporting women in CS.
Computer science is one of the fastest-growing majors at UT. This year, we have around 1800 students in the Class of 2017, making computer science one of the largest majors in the College of Natural Science. The problem, though, is that in most cases, middle and high schools don’t actually offer that many CS-related courses. UTCS is trying to change that, however, with CS Roadshow, a program dedicated to educating students all over Austin about computer science.
UT Austin does more than just provide a world-class education to its own students. As a public school, we’re constantly extending our resources and knowledge into the broader community that we’re a part of.
UTCS has been named the recipient of a $1.2 million grant from the NSF through the CyberCorps: Scholarship for Service program. The SFS program will support students pursuing the university’s INFOSEC Certificate.
