H-P Donation Supports Training in Operating Systems

Hewlett-Packard has donated 16 advanced computer workstations worth $200,000 to California State University, Sacramento. They're being used to teach students the intricacies of computer operating systems.

The donation includes 16 desktop workstations valued at more than $10,000 each and 16 personal computers. Students use the stations to design and test computer operating systems for multiple platforms. They also learn modern debugging techniques and other skills related to implementing an operating system.

The equipment will replace outdated computers used in the "Operating Systems Pragmatics" course, which is offered to computer science and computer engineering students.

CSUS has a long and mutually beneficial partnership with H-P dating back more than two decades. In addition to direct equipment donations and support, H-P often provides employees to teach part-time at the University. H-P also hires large numbers of CSUS graduates.

More information is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
