Celebrating 50 Years of Computer Science at UW

Department of Computer Science

About Computer Science

There are more software jobs than can be filled with current graduates, with this remaining true for the foreseeable future. These are high-paying jobs housed in rich working environments. Software-related work is a highly creative endeavor and interesting design problems arise in every project. The creative aspect of the work is stimulating and can sustain an entire career. Traditional areas of computer science such as graphics, software engineering, networks, databases, multimedia, and artificial intelligence remain strong, with job growth being driven by advances in robotics and the fundamental impact of computer science in nearly every industry. There are many challenging problems remaining for computer scientists to solve.
