Welcome to the Utah State University Department of Computer Science. Our undergraduate and graduate programs prepare students to enter exciting and fulfilling careers. Located in beautiful Logan, Utah, our students enjoy a balance of outdoor adventures and academic rigor. USU Computer Science faculty members are engaged in groundbreaking research projects and they are working with collaborators around the world to shape the future.

With new faculty members joining our team of experienced faculty, we anticipate major academic and research successes this year. We’re excited to offer five new online certificates focused on computer science teaching, software development, web and mobile development, and cloud computing.

The new Master of Data Science program offers students the opportunity to explore the growing fields of big data, data analytics, data mining, data visualization, machine learning, image/video analysis, and database systems.

The USU Computer Science Department is excited to announce our new Master of Computer Science (MCS) program! This professional, coursework-only degree begins Fall Semester 2021. Admissions are open now - please forward/share with your family, friends, classmates, and colleagues who may be interested in a career pivot to Computer Science (no previous CS experience required) or pursuing additional education.

We’re glad to welcome you to the department and we hope to see you around campus soon!

- Dr. Xiaojun Qi, Professor and Department Head
