UTSA School of Data Science
UTSA School of Data Science

As the first of its kind in the state of Texas, the school will further solidify San Antonio’s status as the largest information security hub outside of Washington, D.C.

UTSA is building the best data science program in the world. It will train the smartest students in the field and make them the hottest commodities in the workforce. We hope that as UTSA creates them, the biggest employers in the world will come to downtown San Antonio to recruit their IT workforces. The School of Data Science will bring thousands of the most innovative students, faculty and researchers together and will accelerate everything else in our downtown tech ecosystem.
