Today Information Technology has become pervasive, while its parent,
Computing Science, has become hard to find. Instead of becoming specialty
providers for the IT industry or mass producers of vocationally trained
personnel, our Department has chosen to take
to take the road less traveled.
We continue to emphasize the pristine science that lies under the diverse
aspects of computing. This is the single most important feature of the
education offered here.
There are several ways to present the canonical core of computing science.
Over the years we have developed a distinctive style and method that bridges
the theory-practice divide while remaining grounded in the core. Technology
changes rapidly, especially in the field of
computing, whereas the science,
if it changes at all, does so much more gradually. Those who are clear and
thorough about the fundamentals can adapt to rapid changes in technology
relatively easily. We want the education imparted to our students to be the
basis of a lifetime of learning.
We are committed to the free software and open source movements, as typified
by Linux. We believe that reading and modifying open source code is an
extremely good learning tool and an effective initiation into the culture of
practical software development.
We have a large Departmental library accessible to all students. Jayakar
Library, the central University library, has a very large and varied
collection of books and journals.
Student-teacher relations are informal and friendly a lack of hierarchy is
very much a part of our tradition. Alumni teach many of our courses,
motivated by a sense of gratitude for a place that has given them their
education, and some of them are prized as our best teachers.
