A Message from the Chair

Dr. JInhui Xu.

Although the field of Computer Science is relatively new, we were one of the nation's earliest departments to offer the Computer Science program back in 1967.  We recently celebrated our 50th departmental anniversary in 2017.  We are very proud of our heritage and the fact that our departmental family has grown from just 4-5 faculty a half century ago into the largest department in UB's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, currently numbering 54 world-class faculty and 13 dedicated support staff.

We are equally proud of our alumni and their high achievements over the years, and our many talented students who embody the hope of tomorrow.

We kicked off our 50th Anniversary Celebration with an alumni event in on September 27, 2016 in Mountain Vew, California.  Our celebration, which included a year-long Distinguished Speaker Series comprised of successful female computer scientists, started on November 10, 2016 with Nancy Amato from Texas A & M University.  Our all-female lineup also helped us commemorate computer science pioneer Grace Hopper's 110th birthday.

Our main celebration took place on September 28th - October 1st, 2017.  It featured a welcome reception; fun social events; and great panels, talks, and discussions.

We hope you were thrilled to join us in celebrating our excellence in creativity, scholarship and education over the past 50 years.  If you missed this celebration, rest assured that we're already planning our 55th and 60th anniversary celebrations, at which you'll have another opportunity to mix and mingle with faculty, staff, students, alumni, departmental advisory board members, corporate partners, and other friends and family.
