Do you love using math and science to solve problems? That’s what engineers do and the University of Utah’s College of Engineering has one of the best programs in the United States! Prospective, Transfer, and International Students are invited to join us on April 22nd for a Virtual Student Panel Q & A.

Student Panel

Five of our Engineering Ambassadors (present students, each currently pursuing a degree in one of our 11 undergraduate majors in the College of Engineering) will be live on ZOOM to answer questions about why they chose engineering, why the U, what it’s like being an engineering student, classes to take while in high school or at another university, juggling a rigorous engineering program and a social life, student clubs, talking to professors, AND MORE!


If you are interested, please contact craig.clifford@utah.edu to obtain the ZOOM information. For general information about the College of Engineering and our majors, visit www.coe.edu.

BS in Games

Kahlert School of Computing Video Presentations and Resources

Computer scientists study the foundations of information and computation and their implementation and application in computer systems. These types of engineers focus on developing and implementing software systems by working with sometimes complex algorithms for improving an existing program or creating something even more efficient. Computer Science helps solve the problems of today to make tomorrow better.

Career Outlook

According to the US Department of Labor, between 2014-2024, the job market for computer scientists will grow by 11%. Additionally, computer scientists can expect excellent job prospects as employers are currently experiencing difficulty procuring employees trained with these in-demand skills. Computer scientists work in a variety of areas including:

  • Graphics and Animation
  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Image Analysis
  • Robotics
  • Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing
  • Programming & Compilers
  • Scientific Computing
