Computer Science Golden Jubilee
Celebrating 50 Years of Computer Science Excellence
Academic Year 2015-2016
Missouri S&T was one of the first universities in the nation to offer computer science instruction – computer classes were offered by both the Math and Electrical Engineering departments in the early 1960s. A Masters of Science degree in Computer Science was authorized by the university in 1964. Two students, Larry Clark and Robert DeLozier, were the very first graduates to earn that degree in 1965, and thousands more have graduated since. Today, Computer Science is the second most popular major at the university (after Mechanical Engineering), and that’s not even counting the enrollment in related fields such as computer engineering and information technology. Moreover, computing technologies are now the fabric of everyday life.
So it’s high time for a celebration!
Not just a department celebration or a college celebration, but a university-wide celebration. Not just a celebration for students and faculty, but a celebration that includes alumni, industry and government partners, and the local community. Not just a celebration for a day, but one that begins now and continues throughout the 2015-16 academic year with opportunities for both in-person and virtual participation.
