Why CSE at UTA

Computer scientists, software engineers, and computer engineers create the hardware and software necessary to serve the needs of society. UTA’s Computer Science and Engineering Department offers focus areas in biocomputing and health informatics, artificial intelligence and robots, networks, computer vision and multimedia, database and information systems, embedded systems and mobile computing, software engineering, sustainable computing, security and privacy, machine learning and data mining, and big data and large-scale computing. Students gain valuable experience working alongside faculty researchers, completing senior projects, and working internships.

Degree Requirements



$9.9 million was awarded to engineering students last year from University, College, and department sources.


Students at internships and coops


The Co-op/Internship Office helps students gain placement in co-op and intern positions that will give undergraduate students practical work experience. Internships are generally completed off-campus during a semester or summer term, while students participating in co-ops alternate between full-time work and attending classes, one semester at a time.

Student participating in research

Research and Projects

Undergraduate students may take advantage of opportunities to work in faculty labs on funded research. In a new program at UTA, students may use federal work-study funds to earn money for such research. Undergraduate students complete a capstone course prior to graduation, working in small groups to apply knowledge to a real-world project or problem, often with financial support from an industry partner.
