The Computing Institute was created by UNICAMP in 1996, according to the Resolution CONSU-A-001/1996 of 26/03/1996, to fulfill its mission of teaching, research, and other services to society in the areas of Computer Science and Technology.
The Institute's origins date back to 1969, when a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science was created at UNICAMP. This course was the first of its kind in Brazil, and served as a model for countless other degree programs across the country. That same year, the Computer Science Department (DCC) was created within the Institute of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science (IMECC). In March 1996, the Department ceased to be part of IMECC, and became UNICAMP's 20th teaching and research unit.
