The University of Texas at Dallas is a dynamic, rapidly growing institution made up of seven schools that feature an array of outstanding undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
With 14,500 students and nearly 700 faculty, UT Dallas boasts a freshman class that consistently ranks among the top three in Texas in terms of SAT scores, number of National Merit Scholars and students in the top 10 percent of their high school class. And with plans to significantly increase the size of its student body, faculty and research funding in coming years, the university has added more than 700,000 square feet of classrooms, laboratories and other new space since 2001.
The Department of Computer Science is part of the university’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering & Computer Science, which has taken a leading role in the university’s ambition to become a top-ranked research university. The school features nearly 100 faculty, about evenly divided between the computer science and electrical engineering departments.
The computer science department offers degrees in computer science and software engineering as well as interdisciplinary degrees in telecommunications engineering and computer engineering. Having moved into a new 152,000-square-foot building with 10 modern classrooms in 2002, the department is committed to merging theory with practice, challenging curious minds to play a leading role in creating next-generation technology.
