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. Palden Lama and Dr. Xiaoyin Wang
The UTSA Computer Science department welcomed two new faculty members, Dr. Palden Lama and Dr. Xiaoyin Wang, rounding out the number of tenure-track faculty to 22. Their research and teaching foci are complementary in that their contributions both have applications to cloud computing, albeit from different directions. Dr. Lama’s research focuses on enabling sustainable cloud computing. Whereas, Dr. Wang’s research focuses more on software engineering for emerging platforms, such as mobile and cloud. Their contributions will help to broaden the research portfolio of the UTSA CS department.
