Administrative history

The new $250,000 electronic brain is used by teaching and research units at the University and by government organizations. The Department is in charge of the Centre until 1967. After that the Centre reports to Vice-Rector (Administration). In 1989, the Data Processing and the Academic Computing Centre are amalgamated into one department, Computing and Communications Services (?) reporting to the Vice-President (Administration and Services). After 2002, it reports to the Vice-President (Resources).
