Departmental Awards

The Computer Science department offers three awards:

  • Computer Science Outstanding Senior
  • Computer Information Systems Outstanding Senior
  • Robert F. McGuire Memorial Award

Recipients of these awards are chosen at a departmental meeting by the whole department; the awards are based on the students GPA, citizenship and contributions to the program and department.

The Robert F. McGuire Memorial Award was created in honor of the late Professor McGuire, who taught at Fitchburg State University for over 20 years, and during his tenure he served as both the department chair and the graduate program chair. The award was established in 2000, and the recipient must be either a CS, CIS major or a Graduate student with minimum GPA of 3.0.
