Best Computer Science Colleges in Texas for 2018

Rank School Name Location Description   Rating
1 Rice University Houston, TX

Rice's computer science department is a hidden gem. Their website itself describes it as a “lively and invigorating place”, where rigorous graduate and undergraduate programs are balancing theory and practice. Meanwhile, education at Rice can be identified as a “contact sport”, giving students and faculty myriad possibilities to interact. And even if you didn’t start programming at the age of nine, there’s no reason to throw the towel in right away. Rice welcomes students with little to no experience at all, because programming is just “one part of computer science but the discipline is really about using computers and computation as tools to solve problems and to build tools for others to use.”
