Gates Returns


Bill Gates is no stranger to the university. He delivered the lecture “Bill Gates Unplugged: On Software, Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Giving Back” in Feb. '08 and he visited Carnegie Mellon in Qatar to give the keynote address at the Third International Conference on Information and Communications Technologies and Development (ICTD2009) in April.

Now Gates is planning to swing by Carnegie Mellon’s Pittsburgh campus on Sept. 22 to dedicate the Gates Center for Computer Science. The center was made possible by a lead gift of $20 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
