Welcome Future Texas Computer Science students!

Congratulations on your admission to the UT Computer Science PhD program! We hope you'll join us at GradFest, February 25-27, 2021 to learn more about our program and community.  

GradFest is for you! We have planned opportunities for you to meet our faculty members and students, learn about our research and program, and (virtually) explore our university and city. We hope you will enjoy spending time within our community of scholars and that you’ll be eager to come to Austin to pursue your studies. Please ask questions! We want for you to leave with the information you need to make your graduate school decision.

Checklist for GradFest participants:

  • Review the schedule of events.
  • Register for GradFest by Sunday, February 14, 2021.  You can edit your registration form as often as you'd like before the registration deadline.

  • Make sure you have Zoom installed on your computer. You will need to have a Zoom account in order to attend research talks and your individual meetings with faculty.
