The Program

This program began in the fall of 2013 within a Computer Science Department that has been in existence for 35 years. It is one of the largest CS departments in the nation and is ranked among the top CS departments in the USA with average SAT scores of entering freshmen higher than any public university in Texas. We rank third in the nation for the numbers of students graduating with MS degrees.

Eligible undergraduates and graduate students are assisted in finding summer and full-time internships within all the top computer companies in the United States. Our placement rate is extremely high. UT Dallas Computer Science Graduates are highly sought after by major companies.

The Computing Scholars Program has a specially designed curriculum based on fundamental mathematical and scientific principles.

The courses integrate discussion of current research, recent discoveries, and open problems into a rich logical progression of firmly related topics.
