Texas honors computer science & business
The tides are changing: over the past ten years there has been a fundamental shift in business. In Fortune 500’s list of fastest-growing companies, more than a quarter are in the technology sector. Companies are realizing that understanding topics such as data science, machine learning, and the broader issues of information technology are integral to succeeding in the marketplace. CEOs are just as likely to come from a computer science background as they are from business.
Texas Computer Science is duty-bound to educate future business leaders and prepare them to thrive in this new environment. To answer that call, we have launched the Texas Honors Computer Science and Business program (Texas CSB).
Texas CSB is the partnership between two top-ranked programs, Texas Computer Science and McCombs School of Business. The program’s goal is to ensure that graduates are uniquely prepared with the technical skills and business acumen to pursue careers in a variety of areas—including marketing analytics, computational finance, and leadership roles at tech companies—or jump-start their own business. Graduates from this program will be the most pursued among virtually any graduates at the university.
Tomorrow’s leaders are being trained today in Texas CSB.
Texas Master of Computer Science Online
There’s no doubt that a computer science education is highly desirable and can open up incredible career opportunities. But people live busy lives, and the demand for top-tier degree programs that are affordable and flexible has never been higher. Texas Computer Science is solving this problem by launching its Master of Computer Science Online program. It’s an exciting time to study computer science—and The University of Texas is helping more students get in on the action.
In today’s technology-driven world, there’s a demand for computer scientists that far outpaces the current supply of talent on the job market. The solution seems obvious, right? Universities should expand computer science programs and admit more students. But on-campus programs simply do not have the capacity to educate enough students to meet the demand for computer science graduates.
Furthermore, for many talented people — people who could truly excel in both academic and professional environments — higher education is inaccessible due to factors such as cost, location, and family obligations.
Educational institutions have an obligation to find better ways of making higher education available to more people. As one of the most respected academic communities in the world, Texas Computer Science is uniquely qualified to answer this call. That’s why we’re proud to announce the inaugural year of the Master of Computer Science Online program.
The move to an online environment makes Texas Computer Science’s renowned faculty and resources accessible to thousands of students who otherwise would not be able to pursue a master’s degree. As we expand into the online education frontier, we are also able to develop new pedagogical tools that push us to become better educators.
Computer scientists are indispensable in a number of industries, and a world-class computer science education from The University of Texas opens up graduates to opportunities in fields such as healthcare, transportation and business.
As the world changes to enhance technology, the stewards of computer science education have to find new methods of teaching the next generation of innovators. Texas Computer Science is dedicated to leading the charge in ensuring that a quality computer science education is accessible to talented students.
