We are a department of excellence. The University of Maryland’s computer science faculty continually embarks on cutting edge research, produces award winning papers, and teaches students a foundation of skills to launch their own accomplishments.
We graduate qualified students that earn competitive jobs. Many UMD alumni have become professors at high ranked universities, researchers at well-known industrial labs and software engineers at successful Internet start-ups. Some of our notable alumni include Sergey Brin, co-founder of Google; Gary Flake, a Microsoft Distinguished Engineer and founder of Yahoo! Research Labs; and Naresh Gupta, senior vice president of Adobe’s Print and Publishing Business Unit. In an effort to expand the online Alumni Hall of Fame, if you would like to nominate a UMD CS alumnus or alumna to be highlighted on these pages, please send an email to the chair's office (firstname.lastname@example.org) and to Professor Ashok Agrawala (email@example.com). Our department wants to recognize the achievements of as many alumni as possible.
Additionally, we would like to keep alumni up-to-date on CS events once a semester through a newsletter! If you have not been invited by email to the alumni mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org), you can sign up here. For giving opportunities, please click here.
