    Department of Computer Science, University of Northern Iowa

    Welcome to the home of the Department of Computer Science at
    the University of Northern Iowa!

    This is a

    great time to be in computer science
    especially at UNI. Demand for IT professionals in Iowa and the
    Midwest grows faster than universities can produce graduates.
    The discipline of computing continues to push the boundaries of
    what is possible by discovering new ideas, building new kinds of
    systems, and bring new tools into the home, school, and office.
    If you want to be in the thick of the intellectual excitement

    students work closely with faculty members to explore the
    discipline of computing, learn skills they can use in the
    marketplace, and have the opportunity to do research
