Computer Science and Engineering to celebrate 50 years
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Department of Computer Science and Engineering will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a weekend of festivities Sept. 6-8.
The three-day celebration will include a number of events for alumni, industry partners, faculty, students, staff and stakeholders to enjoy. Most events are open to the public, and select ticketed events are open to those who register online by Aug. 20. Attendees may register for the entire weekend or select specific events to attend.
The celebration will kick off at noon Sept. 6 at Nebraska Innovation Campus with a luncheon and panel discussion among previous department chairs, an industry open house, tours of the Schorr Center, a barbecue on the department’s original Ferguson Hall grounds and a seminar with featured speaker Eric Brown, director of foundational innovation at IBM Watson Health.
Events will continue on Friday with lectures from alumni and a formal dinner reception. The reception will honor new Hall of Computing inductees Tom and Rhonda Peed, founders of Sandhills Publishing. The evening will also include a keynote speech from Lee Redden, chief technology officer and co-founder of Blue River Technology.
Festivities will conclude Saturday in the Haymarket with a tailgate party before the Nebraska vs. Colorado football game on the Nebraska Global building rooftop.
