Department of Computer Science
LeRoy Martin was awarded a Master of Engineering Mathematics degree. He later helped to establish the computer science program at NC State.
A computer created by professors from NC State and built at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology at a cost of $50,000 has arrived on campus. The computer, named Lincy, greeted professors with the message, "I want to be here," and will be used in experiments to measure the distance between heart beats, blood pressure, and brain waves.
Ad hoc Committee on Computer Science formed to include a faculty member each from the departments of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Economics, Industrial Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Statistics, and the director of the Computer Center, Paul E. Lewis
The Triangle Universities Computation Center is established by NC State, Duke University, and UNC-Chapel Hill in Research Triangle Park. It is one of the world's largest university computing centers.
Paul E. Lewis and John W. Cell of the Department of Mathematics write a report recommending the reconstitution of the Computing Center into the Department of Computer Science within the School of Physical Sciences and Applied Mathematics.
The Department of Computer Science moves to Harrelson Hall.
The Department of Computer Science is transferred from the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences to the College of Engineering.
Clay Griffith and Paul D. Peterson, Jr., wrote Computer Science and NCSU: First Twenty-five Years. More historical information exists on the department's website.
