The Department of Computer Science currently has 20 tenured/tenure-track and 12 professors of instruction, and offers B.S., M.S., and PhD. degree programs, supporting about 1,500 undergraduate, 80+ master’s students and 65 PhD. students. Faculty in the Department of Computer Science conduct numerous research projects with funding from a variety of federal and state agencies, and their graduate students are very well placed at leading academic and research institutions. Research is conducted in areas such as artificial intelligence, big data, bioinformatics, cloud computing, computer vision,  cyber security, data analytics, database, game development, human computer interaction, image processing, machine learning, networks, operating systems, parallel, distributed and high performance computing, and software engineering.

Major research units in the department include: the Institute for Cyber Security (ICS), which operates FlexCloud and FlexFarm laboratories dedicated to cyber security research; and the Center for Infrastructure Assurance and Security (CIAS), which focuses on cyber security maturity of cities and communities and also conducts nation-wide Cyber Security Defense Competitions for college and high school students. The research activities and experimental facilities have been well supported by several federal research and infrastructure grants. ICS recently received a 5-year NSF CREST grant on investigating cloud security and privacy. CIAS recently received a 5-year grant from the Department of Homeland Security to set up a national standards organization for information sharing and analysis. The Department also recently received a 5-year grant from the Army Research Laboratory to investigate the modeling and prediction of cyber-attacks as well as several grants from other funding agencies. UTSA Computer Science was ranked #68 in the U.S. by Times Higher Education and #119 by U.S. News in 2018. UTSA undergraduate cyber security programs are collectively ranked #1 in a 2014 survey; the graduate programs are ranked #2 in a 2016 listing. The recently established Army Research Laboratory—South Cyber office at UTSA provides additional opportunities for Cyber Security research and funding. 

The University of Texas at San Antonio, with nearly 32,100 students, is the largest university in South Texas. The City of San Antonio has a population of over one million and is known for its rich Hispanic culture, historic attractions, affordable housing, and excellent medical facilities. The Austin-San Antonio corridor is a high-tech center that is home to many major computer companies. Nearby higher education and research institutions include UT Health San Antonio and Southwest Research Institute.

San Antonio is a recognized cyber-analytics hub. Given the complexity of problems in transdisciplinary fields, and the opportunity for greater government and industry partnerships, UTSA has established The National Security Collaboration Center (NSCC) to support national security and global defense research in cybersecurity and cloud computing, cyber-attack/deterrence, critical infrastructure protection, analytics, high performance computing, AI, machine learning and visualization.  These positions will facilitate outstanding collaborative research to further connect partners in the NSCC ecosystem.
