As state funds become a smaller portion of our budget, the Department of Computer Science and Engineering has become more dependent on the generosity of people who would willingly donate funds to ensure that our students, faculty, and staff have the resources that they need in order to produce the best graduates and research possible. Particular needs of the department include undergraduate scholarships, graduate fellowships, endowed professorships and chairs for faculty, and support for our undergraduate honors program, the ACE Scholars Program.
The Computer Science and Engineering Excellence Fund
This fund is dedicated to the development of the department and to ensuring excellence in its academic programs. Distributions from this fund provide for critical departmental activities not supported by state funding allocations. Project funding targets innovative educational program development and high impact learning initiative. Gifts to this fund can be endowed.
The Aggie Computer Science and Engineering (ACE) Scholars Program
The Aggie Computer Science and Engineering (ACE) Scholars Program is an Honors program for computer science and computer engineering majors in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. The program is designed to engage bright and inquisitive students and to give them opportunities to interact with each other and with our honors faculty. CSCE honors courses have small enrollments promoting close interaction between the faculty and students. However, the program is much more than just smaller and enriched courses. All ACE Scholars participate in an intensive undergraduate research experience, culminating in an Honors Thesis. Additionally, the program includes regular activities, such as monthly seminars and lunches with faculty, designed to build a community of scholars and round out their educational experience. To learn more about the ACE Scholars Program, please visit the ACE Scholars webpage.
