Insights Features CS Faculty and Students
Insights magazine, the flagship publication of the Purdue College of Science, features two major stories about Computer Science faculty and students in its Spring 2011 edition.
The cover story by Linda Thomas Terhune - titled "Virtual History" - highlights many of the ways in which CS faculty are "helping set the pace for change." Featured professors include Susanne Hambrusch, Eugene Spafford, Elisa Bertino, and Jennifer Neville. Also noted is the collaboration between the CS Department and the College of Education which led to the formation of the Computer Science for Education (CS4EDU) program, designed to educate high school computer science teachers and help create a high school computer science curriculum.
A second article - by Della Pacheco and titled "CS Juniors App-ly Classroom Data" - profiles Computer Science majors John Franklin, Jr. and Rodrigo Haragutchi. Franklin and Haragutchi both discuss how they have learned to apply the theories and skills learned in their CS classrooms to develop practical smartphone applications.
The Awards and Honors section also notes recent achievements of CS faculty Alan Qi, Gene Spafford, Jan Vitek, and Olga Vitek.
Insights magazine is produced bi-annually and is sent to alumni, friends, faculty, and staff of the College of Science. It covers the College's endeavors in discovery, learning, and engagement.
