CS Royale: UP DCS Grand Alumni Homecoming

The Department of Computer Science in UP Diliman is celebrating its 26th Anniversary and as part of the celebration, the first-ever grand alumni homecoming entitled "CS Royale" will be held on February 24, 2007, at 2:30 pm in its new home, the College of Engineering Library and Computer Science building. It is the highlight of this year's Computer Science Week celebration on February 19-24.

Through the years, the department has made several BPI Science and P&G Excellence awardees, a few Outstanding Engineering Faculty Members, a number of Undergraduate Research Competition winners, and a curriculum that is always adjusted to adapt to the dynamic field it is in and to contribute to the university’s principle of honoring excellence.

With annual freshmen orientation, a number of department-sponsored events and competitions, Mentoring Program for Freshmen, GeeCS for academic-related events, and 22 CS Weeks so far, it surely has activities for the well-roundedness of the students.

Also, being in a dynamic field, the department has gone through vast changes: from ES to ECS to CS, from a few lecture rooms to a new building, from "the youngest department" to "one of the best departments" and from paper submission of academic requirements to online, instantaneous submission. This shows that it has gone through transformations, and in every step of the way, a CS student has contributed to its advancement.

If you were a part of the CS Department, no matter what period or contribution you have made, your Department is inviting you to be home once again. Witness how it has grown, better yet, be a part of it.
