About the book
This book has been edited by Gordon Bull and Mark Jenkin.
The University of Hertfordshire opened in September 1952 as Hatfield Technical College, the first major post-war project in technical education to be planned in England.
In 2015/16 the University’s School of Computer Science celebrated fifty years of running their BSc in Computer Science. Ten years earlier, prompted by the fortieth anniversary, background research by the author unearthed a wealth of material that was pertinent, not just to the provision of the undergraduate scheme, but also to the development of computing and the computing service in general during the early years at Hatfield. Building on this research, he was able to write a history embracing the period that put Hatfield in the vanguard of computer science education in the 1960s.
