UTCS recognized scholarship recipients, scholarship donors, and Friends of Computer Science (FoCS) partners with a Scholarship Luncheon at the Alumni Center on January 29, 2014.
The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) at The University of Texas at Austin, along with technology partners Hewlett-Packard and NVIDIA, today announced that in January 2014 they will deploy Maverick, a powerful, high-performance visualization and data analytics resource for the open science and engineering community.
Explore UT, a campus community engagement event held each March, invites the public to experience UT.
"When girls think of computer science, they think of the gamers and sitting in a cubicle to program," says Cassidy Lamm, a sophomore at the U. of Alabama at Tuscaloosa. "But I've found that you can do so much more with it."
Lecia Barker, professor in UT’s School of Information, recently received a $1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to increase women’s involvement in information technology.
UTCS’s student group Women in Computer Science (WiCS) has renamed their "iPals" mentoring program to the Nell Dale Mentor Program.
When it comes to the technology industry, women are an endangered species.
The number of women entering computer science and information technology fields is dramatically lower than their male counterparts, and the figure is shrinking. Take a ride up the corporate ladder, and the numbers get even smaller.
The tenth annual First Bytes Summer Camp, sponsored by UTCS, kicked off on June 17 on the university campus.
The free, weeklong camp showcases the potential of a rewarding career in technology to selected Texas high school girls. Campers work together on programming language labs and logic games, see surgical robots in action, meet professional computer scientists, get career mentoring, play games, enjoy campus life and get a taste of what it’s like to have a fascinating, well-paying job.
Explore UT, a campus community engagement event held each March, invites the public to experience UT. Thousands of people explored the UTCS program, discovering the fun of computer science, engaging in artificial intelligence, software programming, gaming, graphics and visualization, and chatting with academic advisers.
This year, university and high school students learned more about software development, computer programming and, perhaps, their future careers through events generously funded by FoCS partners Yahoo!, Lockheed Martin, ConocoPhillips and Schlumberger.
