Dartmouth College

Dartmouth College's long tradition of excellence in computing began in the early 1960's, when John Kemeny and Thomas Kurtz, two members of the Dartmouth Mathematics department, developed the BASIC programming language, a tool that made computing simple and easy for unsophisticated users. Dartmouth also pioneered the use of the time-sharing operating system, thus providing interactive access to a large number of users.

Today, Computer Science is a separate department, housed in a modern building with excellent computing and research, and high-quality office space for faculty and graduate students. Our faculty are known worldwide for their excellence in research. Our Ph.D. students are the recipients of numerous prestigious graduate fellowships. The faculty and the students are engaged in several funded research projects, and publish their work in top conferences and journals.
