Dr. Siobahn Day North Carolina A&T

In 2015, women earned only 18% of all computer science degrees in the nation.  On July 5, 2018, Dr. Siobahn Day made history and added to this percentage by becoming the first woman to ever graduate with a Ph.D. in computer science from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.

Siobahn Day has worked for three years to make history, not only for herself but for North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University.

Day successfully defended her dissertation on Thursday to become the first  woman to graduate N.C. A&T’s computer science doctoral program.

“It’s surreal,” said Day, a Chancellor’s Distinguished Fellow. “Sometimes you think you aren’t good enough and it’s a lot of pressure but it’s an honor.”
