goodguynews (2618157) writes "The dean of college of engineering at University of Florida has decided to destroy the long standing Computer Science department.
In the pretext of budget cuts she is all set to put forward a proposal that will cut down all research from the department, fire most professors and staff and distribute the remaining faculty to either Industrial Engineering, Electrial engineering or Biomedical engineering. She confidently states in public that Databases belongs to Industrial Engineering, thereby making a mockery of herself and her position.
The Computer Science department is amongst most revenue generating department and attracts THE MOST international and american students.
Despite these facts the dean is misrepresenting the budget and vital figures and has given a less than a week's ultimatum before she finalizes this. Watch videos and for more info visit the website."
