Awards Day

Department of Computer Science Awards Day

The Department of Computer Science Awards Day is generally held towards the end of each spring semester.  Awards Day is a special time for the department. On this day, the department honors those computer science and software engineering majors whose achievement at Texas State University indicates a sustained level of excellence. Students receiving recognition should certainly be proud of their accomplishments, just as the faculty and staff are proud of them. The department also honors some other staff members, including student workers, lab assistants, tutors, and lab administrators for excellence in their respective duties.

April 21, 2017, is the date of the spring, 2017, departmental Awards Day and is an afternoon event.  Notices are sent to students as the date approaches.
