CS @ ILLINOIS 50th Anniversary Celebration
50 Years of CS @ ILLINOIS
During the last five decades, our department has produced thousands of creative and driven graduates who have made important contributions to the computing field and to society at large. Collectively, our alumni and faculty have birthed entirely new industries, generated billions of dollars in commerce, created tens of thousands of jobs, and revolutionized the way people communicate, shop, conduct business, and are entertained.
These accomplishments deserve a fitting tribute.
We invite all our alumni and friends, corporate and campus partners, and our current faculty, staff and students to join us for a week of celebration. Activities include the Women in Computer Science Fall Student & Alumni Dinner, the 50th Anniversary Celebration, the CS @ ILLINOIS Awards, and Homecoming festivities and football.
