The department has 4,383 successful and engaged alumni, and is strongly supported by the Academy of Computer Science, a 40-member organization dedicated to developing key programs of the department with financial support, and active engagement and advocacy. The department also has an active Industrial Advisory Board that provides feedback to ensure the curriculum remains relevant to industry and that our graduates have the capability to apply CS principles in innovative ways, and to provide financial support. The department is particularly proud that nearly a thousand recruiters sought Computer Science graduates last academic year, including multiple national labs with whom we have long-established hiring pipelines as well as funded research collaborations.
