The UND Department of Computer Science made the move back to its original academic home, the College of Engineering and Mines, on July 1.  Despite the move, the department will remain in its current space, using classrooms and labs as currently assigned, however, all administrative aspects of running the department were transferred to tje College of Engineering on July 1. There will be no disruption of teaching or research activities that are currently planned.
