Awards Celebrate the 'Heart' of the College of Computing Community

The College of Computing community gathered today to celebrate the service and accomplishments of its own.

More than 100 students, staff, and faculty members attended the 28th Annual College of Computing Awards Celebration, held in the Klaus Advanced Computing Building’s Atrium.

“The students, staff, and faculty are at the heart of the GT Computing community,” said Zvi Galil, the John P. Imlay Jr. Dean of Computing. “It is my honor to recognize their achievements and successes each year with these well-deserved awards.”

One of the celebration highlights each year is the announcement of the winners of the Dean’s Office Awards. These are the only three of the dozens of awards given in seven categories that are not published ahead of time.
