Celebrating 50 years
Created in 1968, the Department is celebrating its 50th anniversary; we are one of oldest computer science departments in the world.
Fifty years is a long time for a department of Computer Science. During this period, we have witnessed major advances in our discipline, to which we have made significant contributions.
During 2018, we will be organising a range of activities that celebrate not just the Department but Computer Science as a whole:
- January 13–14: Royal Hackaway, our first Hackathon organised by our student-led Computing Society
- March 4 – July 2: Fernando Orejas visits the Department supported by a Leverhulme Visiting Professorship
- September – December: the Two Hundred Years of Becoming Digital exhibition
- October 6: official celebration – all alumni welcomed!
