Two of our distinguished faculty, Chandra Bajaj and Inderjit Dhillon, have been elected IEEE Fellows.
In a speech Wednesday to an audience of computer science students, Bill Gates, Microsoft founder and co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, offered his vision of how the computing revolution will dramatically improve human well-being in the next few decades.

For years, drug researchers have tapped computers to take serendipity out of the discovery equation, and a group from the University of Texas at Austin has advanced computational drug discovery further with updated image-reconstruction and modeling techniques, according to the university.
From image processing, to 3D modeling, to search algorithms, computer and computational science help improve the drug discovery pipeline
Discoveries in bioinformatics provide new therapeutic interventions to disease by replacing expensive, time-consuming physical experiments with an automated computational search. Public databases now contain experimentally determined sequence and structural information for hundreds of thousands of proteins
Faculty at the The University of Texas at Austin Department of Computer Science (UTCS) are at the forefront of the digital revolution. UTCS recently celebrated a long list of faculty awards.
Professor Chandrajit Bajaj received a 2011-12 Moncrief Grand Challenge Faculty Award to pursue his project on three-dimensional imaging at the molecular level of therapeutic drug targets. He was among seven University of Texas at Austin researchers selected for the award who are confronting what the scientific community has defined as this century's grand challenges in drug design, environmental sustainability and improved oil recovery. The awards range up to $60,000 for a semester.
Faculty at the The University of Texas at Austin Department of Computer Science (UTCS) are at the forefront of the digital revolution. Recently, they have been awarded four ACM Fellows, three IEEE Fellows, a Vice Chair position on the President's Council and a Best Paper Award.
On Friday, December 4th, 2009, Dr. Chandrajit Bajaj was selected as Fellow of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), a high honor in the field of computer science.
The ACM Fellows designation is bestowed upon association members who have distinguished themselves with outstanding technical and professional achievements in the field of information technology. A total of 47 fellows were named this year out of 68,000 members.
