The CSU Robot Club is a group of interested students and mentors who gather once a week to try projects with robots. Students work in groups to write new applications or demos and to try experiments. Past projects have included working with whole robots and with some of the parts that comprise the robot (such as speech generation or the camera).
Effective Fall 2005, we offer a new major in Applied Computing Technology (ACT). The first two years of the ACT degree program are the same as the traditional CS degree, but the last two years allow students to focus on applying computer science to another discipline. Initially, we're offering the ACT degree in Computing Technology and Computing Education, but we anticipate additional concentrations in this attractive program. More information about the ACT degree is available here.
Our first Graduate Research Symposium was a big success! The symposium was held April 18 in Ammons Hall and featured over 45 graduate student posters highlighting the department's research activities. The symposium welcomed visitors from both the university and industry. Poster award winners were:

Some Computer Science courses now require students
to pay a supplemental tuition charge. CSU assesses supplemental tuition on a per credit hour basis for undergraduate students enrolled in upper division courses and/or courses in certain high cost and/or high demand programs. One of the things our department is doing with that money is hiring additional faculty. We're doing another search this year and hope to have 19-20 tenure track faculty by next year. Bioinformatics is an area we'd like to expand. For more information on supplemental tuition, please visit the Registrar's Office.
Plans for the construction of our new building are approaching final approval. If all goes as planned, our new building should be ready by summer 2008. We're excited about moving "on" campus at last!
