Math, Statistics & Computer Science
Shaping technology and the future in areas where expertise is in high demand.
Why study math, data and technology sciences?
Growth and change in technology have brought a boom in the availability of data and the need for people to shape technologies. Growing areas like machine learning require expertise in programming, data science and related fields. Statistical, mathematical, data science and computing experts are needed in an economy that demands skilled practitioners in these areas. In particular, the world needs math and technology leaders who are committed to shaping future technologies in ways that benefit people and industries alike, as students learn to do at UT Austin.
Outstanding, world-class faculty teach and research in these sciences in three departments.
I've always lived with a stubborn itch to understand the inner workings of things I care about: how my favorite foods are made, why some music sounds natural to the ear and some doesn't, and how solar panels are able to turn the sun into useable energy, for example. After taking a Computer Architecture class, I now understand how computers logically function, which is awe-inspiring to me.”
