It's relevant. Computers are a part of everything we do. The computer field drives innovation in many other fields, including medicine, education, business, communication, and entertainment.

It's creative and challenging. The variety of applications of computer science and engineering makes for highly-creative and challenging projects. Working in the computer field might mean building web-based applications, providing security for sensitive information, developing systems to process scientific data, writing software for new mobile devices, and much more.

It's lucrative. Jobs in the field are among the highest paid, in part because qualified computer scientists and engineers are in demand. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says computing is among the top fields for new job growth through 2018. Read the report...

The future is full of possibilities. There is no question computers are infiltrating every aspect of our society. With changing technology, we cannot know what exciting turns your career might take. What we can say is you will be in a position to contribute in whatever way you choose.

Why Computer Science and Engineering at UTC?

Our faculty is involved. UTC Computer Science students benefit from smaller classes and a low student/teacher ratio which means more interaction with your teachers. We have been where you are and understand that you need to be challenged and encouraged. All classes are taught by faculty with professional degrees. Most faculty hold the Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer Engineering or a closely related discipline.

Our program is varied. At the undergraduate level, you can study Software Systems, Scientific Applications, Computer Engineering, and Information Security and Assurance. We even have a teacher certification program (UTeach). Our department also offers a Master's degree and post baccalaureate certificates.

We prepare you for the real world. Our students have opportunities for internships, co-op experience and special projects within the College. This is part of why you'll find our graduates working for Fortune 500 companies, local, state and federal government agencies. They have also gone on to graduate programs in computer science, engineering, and medicine.
