Interhack Speaks at University Symposium on Computer Science Education
Interhack founder Matthew Curtin will participate in the industry panel at The Inaugural Symposium on Computer Science Education at Franklin University on April 17, 2009. The symposium was created to bring together members of industry and academia to determine how they can work together to meet the needs of both students and business.
As a computer scientist and an employer of computer science practitioners, Mr. Curtin recommends his position. “Computer science graduates who succeed in industry will need to know the theory of computer science and the history of its applications. Those who can draw upon this foundation will be best equipped to adapt---an absolute requirement to survive in a competitive environment.”
Curtin spoke at a Franklin University event earlier this year that pulled in a crowd at the Ross Auditorium on Franklin's main campus in downtown Columbus. The event, The Next 25 Years: Applications of Computer Science, targeted students and industry. Curtin urged students to get a firm grasp on computer science theory and history in order to make their practice of computer science relevant in the years to come.
The Inaugural Symposium on Computer Science Education is another event celebrating the 25th anniversary of Franklin's Computer Science program. It will be held on April 17, 2009 from 9:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. at the Ross Auditorium at Franklin University. Those from industry and academia are invited and may register online.
