University of California - Berkeley

University of California - Berkeley

The impact of Berkeley research on the practical end of computer science has been significant. During the 1970's theoretical research led by Professors R. A. Karp and S. A. Cook established fundamental concepts and limits of computational complexity. Former student Steve Wozniak co-founded Apple Computer with Steve Jobs. Berkeley faculty and students, obtained source code and rights to the early Bell Labs UNIX operating system, added networking features and virtual memory support for the DEC VAX. The work on computer-aided design broke new ground with demonstrations of design synthesis from logic specifications, producing chip designs that are correct by construction. Yet there also were many new activities and achievements, such as its organization Women In Computer Science & Electrical Engineering. WICSE is an organization for all women graduate students in Computer Science at the University of California in Berkeley, which includes a big-sister program.
