Computing across Campus

Computing is integral to essentially every academic discipline at The University of Texas at Austin. In addition to the core strengths provided by units for which computing is central to their mission, there is substantial additional computing leadership found across campus. While not all of them are listed here currently, all of these people and resources are key components of the world class research and educational missions in computing at UT Austin.
