Alumni Awards

CS @ ILLINOIS Alumni Awards

The Department of Computer Science annually recognizes alumni and faculty members who have made professional, technical, educational, or service contributions that brings distinction to themselves, the department, and the university. We welcome all alumni and friends to be a part of this tradition: nominate someone you know worthy of this honor, and come back to campus to celebrate with each new class.

Announcing our 2016 honorees:

The CS Awards activities are held in conjunction with the Women in Computer Science Alumni & Student Dinner, and the College of Engineering Homecoming Tailgate, making it an ideal time to visit campus.
