DESIGN AND BUILD TECHNOLOGIES OF THE FUTURE.
One of the most exciting aspects of studying computer science is learning the theory,
design, and implementation of solutions to problems that we don't even know about
yet. A degree in computer science will give you the tools you need to help companies,
in fields like robotics, computer-enhanced vision, and digital forensics, explore
cutting-edge technologies to improve our quality of life and the future of our planet.
Our program focuses on equipping graduates to stand out from their peers by balancing
the theoretical aspects of computing with the practical application of design and

Virtually every company is looking to computing to tackle the challenges of tomorrow. Regardless of the industry, there is ubiquitous demand for software design, development, and application. One of the advantages of a degree in Computer Science is that it opens the door to work in career fields across the spectrum. Some potential job opportunities are:
DATA SCIENTISTInnovate the processes of data retrieval, analysis, and communication. Help companies translate their data into innovative technologies for future success.
SOFTWARE DEVELOPERCustomize programs to fit the specific needs of an organization, address niches with uniquely designed algorithms, and collaborate with various teams in a company environment.
WEB DEVELOPERCombining the technical skills of a programmer and creative expertise of a graphic designer, web developers are the people who ensure a website has the functionality and aesthetic that it needs to operate.
I always wanted to experience what it was like to study in a U.S. university and Texas Tech-CR has given me that opportunity.”
