Why Computer Science at UW is Different

Men working with computers
UW course offerings include: Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, Cybersecurity, Maching Learning (ML), Mobile Programming, and Virtual/Augmented Reality (VR/AR).

A computer science degree from the University of Wyoming will challenge you while inspiring innovative learning. Computer science can develop into a career path and be a means for exposure to a new way of thinking.

Have access to classes you need, when you need them

This one seems simple, yet many schools have a problem with it. Due to demand or cap limits, enrolled students at other institutions often are not able to take all computer science courses needed to graduate in four years. At UW, you won’t be blocked or shut out of any classes you need. That means you’ll graduate on time, not forced to attend extra semesters.

Room full of large computers

Your education will lead you to a job

One of the leading reasons people choose computer science is the extremely high rate of job placement. UW students experience this firsthand, and there’s an extremely good chance of job placement after graduation. You can do just about anything with the degree. In any profession – you won’t use a computer in some form? That’s why computer science can benefit you.

Embrace a whole new way of thinking

No matter what you end up doing for a career, you’ll need problem solving skills. Computer science can provide an excellent foundation for that skill. Computer scientists have the ability to make a problem concrete to see how to write a program to solve it. Almost any problem can be automated if you know how.
