<p>This article outlines some of the major changes in the Computer Science Department since Tom Kilburn's retirement in 1981, focusing on changed patterns of research output, recruitment of academic staff, and sources of research funding. It argues that the department became what can be considered to be a modern research-oriented enterprise, widening the scope of its research, its connections with industry and other academic departments, and its interdisciplinary research. This change was the outcome of internal policies as well as external influences, such as government policy.</p>
