Rear Admiral Grace Hopper (1906-1992) was a pioneer computer scientist, often referred to by her nickname, "Amazing Grace" due to the breadth of her scientific achievements and professional accomplishments. She earned a doctorate in mathematics from Yale University in 1934, a time when few women obtained higher degrees. She worked on the Harvard Mark I computer and UNIVAC I and was instrumental in the development of COBOL, an early high-level programming language still in use today. Grace Hopper visited Hood College several times in the 1980's, giving a departmental lecture, receiving an Honorary degree in 1983 and serving as the Commencement speaker in 1984 -- inspiring women to pursue careers in the sciences. In honor of her birthday, December 9, we are celebrating Grace Hopper Week.

To celebrate her unique achievements, we invite students from grades 9-12 to submit essays for the Hood Grace Hopper Essay Contest. Available prizes include mini drones, fitness activity trackers and space pens and more!

Monday, August 7, 2017 FREDERICK, Maryland—The Maryland Higher Education Commission has approved Hood College to begin its Master of Science in Cybersecurity. Cybersecurity is the ability to protect or defend the use of cyberspace from cyber attacks. It is an emerging discipline focused on the development of methods and techniques for the protection of data, information, systems, networks and infrastructural assets. “Our new cybersecurity program is designed to work with local technology companies and government organizations,” said Hood President Andrea Chapdelaine, Ph.D.

Tom Corcoran and Raf Zamora toured 'Cori', the fifth most powerful supercomputer in the world, which they used while working on an internship at Berkeley Lab.
