Welcome to the Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science and optional concentrations in Software Engineering and in Computer and Information Security. Faculty in the Department of Computer Science conduct numerous research projects with funding from a variety of federal and state funding agencies. Research is conducted in areas such as algorithms, bioinformatics, computer and information security, computer architecture, computer networks, databases, high performance computing, parallel and distributed systems, programming languages and compilers, and software engineering among others.
Welcome to new faculty: Dr. Matthew Gibson and Dr. Abdullah Muzahid
The UTSA Computer Science department welcomed two new faculty members, Dr. Matthew Gibson and Dr. Abdullah Muzahid, rounding out the number of tenure-track faculty to 22. Their research and teaching foci are very different, but in combination, they help to strengthen the department. Dr. Gibson’s research focuses on developing algorithms in computational geometry. Whereas, Dr. Muzahid’s research focuses more on parallel architecture programmability and hardware. Their contributions to these two fundamental areas in computer science (i.e., algorithms and architecture, respectively) will help to broaden the research portfolio of the UTSA CS department and serve to keep students grounded in fundamental concepts.
