GT CSE 10 Year Anniversary

Georgia Tech’s School of Computational Science and Engineering in the College of Computing celebrates its tenth birthday.

GT CSE 10 Year Anniversary.
Happy Birthday CSE!

During my second week of graduate school, my new department threw a 10-year anniversary party. The event kicked off with a short presentation by our chair Dr. David Bader about the state of CSE at GT.

Here’s the short version: CSE at GT is doing fantastic and rapidly growing. In fact, it’s growing so fast that CSE is moving to a brand new High Performance Computing building that will be finished in 20181.

HPCC set to be done in 2018 will support groundbreaking high tech research & development. #InstituteAddress

Once the presentation concluded, attendees were treated to food, cake, music, live visionary painting by a Georgia Tech alumnus, and a commemorative shirt and drinking glass.

Hopefully I’ll be graduating when CSE has its 15 year anniversary!2

  1. I’ll be in my third year of the Ph.D. program in 2018, so I should be one of the first people to occupy the new building. 

  2. That’ll put me right at 5 years: the average amount of time it takes to earn a Ph.D. in CSE.
