Fifty years ago, in 1965, two students became the first computer science majors to graduate from Missouri S&T. The university's name was changed the previous year from MSM (Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy) to UMR (University of Missouri - Rolla). Looking back, it seems that intermediate name change was also heralding a whole new age of computing technology that has forever changed our lives and our livelihoods. As we reflect on the past 50 years and look ahead to the future, these are our goals for the Computer Science Golden Jubilee:
Hackathon for Humanity is a part of this golden celebration. It is an opportunity for Missouri S&T alumni, students, faculty, and staff to come together to work on projects to better our community and our world.
