We probably don’t need to tell you this, but there’s a global shortage in computer science graduates. Not only does our computer science program rank in the Top 10, we just happen to have more computer science students than any other university in the country—and possibly the world. 500 of them will graduate this spring alone. How many do you need?

The Program

We do it all at Maryland: innovative software, powerful computational tools, advanced hardware and cutting-edge engineering approaches to designing, developing, testing and evaluating new systems. UMD’s expertise is both broad and deep, with extensive learning and research opportunities in cybersecurity and other fields.

This diverse group of students in the College of Computer, Mathematical, and Natural Sciences has interests ranging from systems to programming languages, from algorithms to design and from virtual and augmented reality to robotics.

Diversity & Inclusion

We have more than 700 women in our computer science program, the most in the country. The number of female undergraduate students in the program has doubled over the last 5 years and the number of underrepresented minorities in the major has increased by 50 percent during the last 5 years.

The University of Maryland is home to 6,800 international students from 134 countries. We’re a top producer of African-American undergraduates, and we’ve been named as a “Best of the Best” LGBTQ university. If you want to hire top-tier employees who reflect the world, UMD is your source.


Two out of every three graduates of UMD’s computer science program aren’t moving to Cupertino, Seattle or New York. They’re staying right here in the D.C. metro area to work for startups, established entities, global juggernauts and government mainstays.
