Celebrating 60 years of Computing at Leeds

Computing history

In 1957, the University of Leeds was one of the first universities in the UK to buy a computer. This was a revolutionary development in university science and engineering, and the springboard for academic computer science in the university.

60 years on, computer science underpins nearly everything we do.

On Wednesday 11 October 2017, alumni, students, staff and external collaborators attended our Diamond Jubilee Celebration Event: Past, Present and Future.
