The Department of Computer Science is rated highly by academics and the business community. Adobe Systems, WordPerfect, Atari, CAE Systems and other notables were created at the University of Utah.

The University is particularly keen on genetic research, environmental research and offers opportunities for international scientists to participate in first rate research.
