CS department to partner with College Board

By Associated Engineering Press

The University of Alabama was selected as one of the top 10 universities to participate in the College Board’s Advanced Placement Pilot Study to help with creating a new AP exam in Computer Science.

The course, which is listed as CS 104, was created to offer non-major students the opportunity to master the basics of computer science, according to Jeff Gray, associate professor of computer science.

In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
