Computer Science Advisory Council

The Computer Science Advisory Council was established in 1974. Each year, council members from a number of industries visit the campus together and meet with the departmental faculty in order to discuss trends in industrial computing, strengths and weaknesses of graduates hired from ours and other computer science programs, and topics for inclusion in current and new courses.

These meetings, as well as informal contacts among Council and faculty members throughout the year, have contributed significantly toward keeping our program current with the dynamic field of computing. Since 2005, the Council members have also completed a survey instrument that is designed to help us determine whether our graduates are meeting their job requirements.
