About The University of Texas at El Paso:

The University of Texas at El Paso is a Carnegie R1 and Community Engaged research university at the heart of the U.S.-Mexico border region that is increasing access to excellent higher education. UTEP enrolls nearly 25,000 students - 83% of whom are Hispanic and half of whom are the first generation in their families to attend college.

The city's border location makes it an ideal venue for academic programs and research studies on topics of national interest such as bilingual education/language acquisition, border environment and immigration, environmental sustainability and infrastructure, health disparities, and international trade and commerce.

The Paso del Norte region's center for intellectual capital, UTEP is one of the major economic engines in the region, adding $1.4 billion to the local economy annually.

El Paso's active arts and culture community features the state's longest- running symphony orchestra, a nationally recognized chamber music festival, art galleries, museums, and a full schedule of seasonal events and festivals. UTEP adds to the arts and entertainment scene with an award-winning dinner theater, music and dance productions, contemporary and student art galleries, and a natural history museum.

For sports fans, the UTEP Miners offer exciting Division I college athletics at several campus venues including Sun Bowl Stadium, the Don Haskins Center, Kidd Field, University Field and the Helen of Troy Softball Complex. Southwest University Park, located a mile away in lively downtown El Paso, is home to the El Paso Chihuahuas, the Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, and the El Paso Locomotive, a professional soccer team founded in 2019.

The CS faculty has an internationally distinguished record of research and national leadership in professional organizations with one of the highest research expenditures at the University. The department currently has 18 tenure and tenure/track faculty members and 3 professors of practice. The department offers B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science and M.S. degrees in Software Engineering and Data and Information Sciences.

The student population has been growing steadily over the last ten years, with the department currently serving more than 1200 students. UTEP is an NSA Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Operations and Cyber Defense, and it leads the NSF-funded INCLUDES Computing Alliance of Hispanic-Serving Institutions (CAHSI), a national network of Hispanic-Serving Institutions and organizations from the public and private sectors committed to Hispanic and female student recruitment, retention, and advancement in computing.
