The course of Informatics and Computing Engineering at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (FEUP) started in the academic year 1994/95. The course started in the form of a Degree (LEIC) from 1994/95 until 2005/06 and went on to become an Integrated Master (MIEIC) from 2006/07. In 2014, 20 years of this course will be completed and, to celebrate it, with the collaboration of the Department of Informatics Engineering at FEUP (DEI), the 20 years of Informatics and Computing Engineering at FEUP are being organized.
The days will take place on the 7th and 8th of November 2014, the week in which an exhibition will also be inaugurated in order to showcase some historical aspects of the course. On the 7th and on the morning of the 8th of November, a series of lectures and panel discussions will take place on pedagogical, curricular, professional and research aspects of the course of Informatics and Computing Engineering at FEUP. The aim is thus to ensure that Computer Engineers trained at FEUP continue to acquire the required skills, with a view to rapid and effective integration into the world of work, as well as constant updating throughout their professional lives.
For this reflection it is expected the participation of prominent personalities in the university and business world in the area of Computer Engineering, former students and professors of the course.
