The Department of Computer Science at Texas State is the hub of computing related education and research activities on the campus.
The department is on a mission to advance the knowledge of computer science and technology through education, research, and service for the betterment of industry, government, and society. We seek to become a competitive doctoral-granting department and to expand our depth and breadth in the research and study of applied computing.
Computer science faculty members actively pursue research in artificial intelligence, computer communication and networking, computer vision, cyber security and trustworthy computing, database and information systems, data analytics, distributed and parallel computing, high performance computing, human computer interaction, image retrieval, machine learning multimedia computing, sensor networks, software engineering, and sustainable computing. The faculty's research has been supported by federal and state agencies and industry such as NSF, NIST, DoD, DoE, PNNL, LLNL, TxDOT, Semiconductor Research Consortium, IBM, Intel, NVidia, Google, Huawei Technologies,and Emerson. Our faculty members have obtained prestigious awards such as the PECASE Award, NSF CAREER Awards, and IBM Faculty Fellowship.
Computer science students take courses in a well-designed curriculum taught by the department's faculty members who are accessible, nurturing, and eager to engage students in learning and research. Students have access to an array of hardware, system software, and applications in our first-class computing laboratories.
Individuals may apply for “non-degree seeking student” admission through The Graduate College to enroll in computer science background.
Please note: International students must meet specific admission requirements, including acceptable TOEFL or IELTS scores. Please refer to the “Non-Degree-Seeking Applicants” section of this catalog.
