The charter members of the University of Arkansas Academy of Computer Science and Computer Engineering

The University of Arkansas Academy of Computer Science and Computer Engineering was created in April 2017 to recognize the achievements of graduates from the Department of Computer Science and Computer Engineering and others closely affiliated with the department.

The academy provides advisory guidance and counsel to the department, as well as encourages scholarships, gifts and grants that support the department. A total of thirty-seven chartered members were inducted into the academy this time. These members of the academy have demonstrated professional activities that attest to a distinguished record in their career field.

"I'd like to thank the alumni, faculty, and staff of the Department of Computer Science and Computer Engineering who were instrumental in setting up this academy," said Xiaoqing "Frank" Liu, head of the department. " I am confident that it will be very successful in connecting our alumni and supporters to our department as we work together to strengthen and promote our computer science and computer engineering programs."
