About University of Hong Kong, Computer Science Department
The history of the Department of Computer Science can be traced back to the late '60s, when the University started to install her first main-frame computer which also marked the establishment of the Computer Centre. The mission of the Computer Centre was twofold, one in providing computing services to the University community , and the other in supporting teaching and research tasks in computer science. In '60s - '70s, where computers were still very rare and expensive, the Centre provided a number of service courses to all the disciplines in the University. In addition, the Centre also offered M.Phil. and Ph.D. degree programmes at that time.
