Message From Head of Department

I hope you enjoy reading about the exciting things that have been happening recently in the Computer Science Department. With all of the hirings that we've done since 2000, the face of the Department has changed considerably. From new research projects to new course offerings, the environment continues to grow and evolve.

Our department is in the first year of a two-year process of deploying new undergraduate courses that include topics such as CS 409 Interactive Entertainment Software, CS 280 Social and Professional Aspects of Computer Science and CS 215 Web Oriented Programming. We've included examples from several new courses in the newsletter (Page 9). There is also exciting news about our research programs, job opportunities in information technology and new arrivals to the department.

My time as Department Head has ended. It was an enjoyable eight years spent with a terrific group of people. My sincere thanks to all of them and to the many students who contribute so much to the success of the department. Best wishes to Dr. Xue Dong Yang as the new Department Head.
