Texas Computer Science has been a driving force from the beginning of the digital revolution. Our graduate program began in 1966, the same year DARPA started working on the project that became the Internet and more than a decade before Apple or Microsoft was founded. Today our program ranks consistently among the top 10 graduate programs in the country.
The foundation of the department's graduate program is its research. Particular areas of strength include Systems (hardware, software, and the interface between them), Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Networks, Security, Data Mining and Visualization, Bioinformatics, Theory, and Formal Methods and Verification.
Our graduate faculty is a group of over 40 award-winning leaders in the CS research community. They hold Turing Awards, they are members of the National Academies, and they serve as Presidential advisors. And they run research groups through which our graduate students participate in world changing research efforts.
