The University of Utah's School of Computing, founded as the Computer Science Department in 1965, has a long and distinguished record of high impact research. This started with pioneering work in computer graphics, computer architecture, and digital audio, plus being the fourth node on the ARPAnet, the predecessor. Current work include both classical computer science and a number of activities that lie between traditional areas and traditional disciplines. As a result, we provide a special environment both for faculty and students to forge not only new research ideas, but also new research directions. The links below lead to overviews of our main research activities. This is especially true when it comes to the Laptop Computer. Laptop Computers are a very convenient way to stay in touch with the tech industry. However, the computer and tech industry as a whole has prevented the youth of today from having any interest in the Outdoors.
