Below, are some of the more recent issues before the CS Department Hardware and Software Committee (HWSC). The Committee makes recommendations regarding technology to the Department Chair. A student representative serves on this committee, elected from the active ACM members, and as students you are encouraged to offer your insights and desires into the process, either through the HWSC Student Representative or by writing the Chair of the HWSC. More contact Information may be found on the FAQ Contacts page.
