Student Engagement and Support

The CS department is committed to providing undergraduates with opportunities and support to enrich their academic experience.

Our undergraduates are involved in extracurricular activities that give them the opportunity to connect their academics with real world applications and professional opportunities. These activities range from undergraduate research to student organization involvement.

Our students have the ability to study abroad all over the world in countries such as Australia, Brazil, Denmark, England, France, Peru, Poland, Spain, South Africa, and Switzerland. Many of these programs include comparable tuition and living expense to a semester at UT and there are scholarships, fellowships, and grants to make it all possible.

Even in the rockiest of economic times, CS students are offered internships and jobs. The Natural Sciences Career Design Center has a database to alert students of career fairs, internship opportunities, on-campus interviews, and information sessions. They also help students with resume critiques, salary negotiation practice, and job search assistance.

CS students are eligible to apply for scholarships through many sources including the university, college, and private sources. Through the generosity of our many donors, the Department of Computer Science is also able to offer our students many scholarships.
