Gain Skills to Develop Emerging Tech

The Department of Computer Science at UT Martin emphasizes the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing, rather than teaching specific technologies. It provides the foundation to break into some of the most exciting and profitable careers.

Students learn the fundamentals of the computing discipline, including topics such as computer programming, mobile app development, operating systems, compilers, programming language design, algorithms and computing theory, graphics, artificial intelligence, networking, and databases.
