  Leading the Charge: Reinventing Computer Science at Penn
Rapid change. That's the trademark characteristic of the discipline of computer science. Should you need proof, just think about entire encyclopedias, books and music all in a single device in the palm of your hand. Penn Engineering's CIS department is a leading force in this change. The groundwork may already have been laid, but to Sampath Kannan, the Henry Salvatori Professor and Chair, this is just the beginning.
