The Electronic Campus and Computing Museum

Northwest Missouri State University has been directly and indirectly involved in computing technology since 1945 when Northwest alumnus Jean Jennings Bartik became one of the first computer programmers.

Jean was one of only six women involved in programming the ENIAC, the world's first Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer. She also went on to program the UNIVAC I, the world's first commercial computer.

Learn more about the history of the Electronic Campus and Jean Jennings Bartik's pioneering work in computing by taking a tour of Northwest's Computing Museum. You can also view the online Computing Museum, which is an interactive experience with many unique photo albums.
