Computer Science—the theory, representation, processing, communication and use of information—is fundamentally transforming every aspect of human endeavor. The Department of Computer Science at Iowa State University advances computational and information sciences through; 1. educational and research programs within and beyond the university; 2. active engagement to help define national and international research, and 3. educational agendas, and sustained commitment to graduating leaders for academia, industry and government.

History
The Computer Science Department was officially established in 1969, with Robert Stewart serving as the founding Department Chair. Faculty were composed of joint appointments with Mathematics, Statistics, and Electrical Engineering. In 1969, the building which now houses the Computer Science department, then simply called the Computer Science building, was completed. Later it was named Atanasoff Hall. Throughout the 1980s to present, the department expanded and developed its teaching and research agendas to cover many areas of computing.

Abstract
This chapter introduces an analysis process that combines the different perspectives of system decomposition with hazard analysis methods to identify the safety-related use cases and scenarios. It argues that the derived safety-related use cases and scenarios, which are the detailed instantiations of system safety requirements, serve as input to future software architectural evaluation. Furthermore, by modeling the derived safety-related use cases and scenarios into UML (Unified Modeling Language) diagrams, the authors hope that visualization of system safety requirements will not only help to enrich the knowledge of system behaviors but also provide a reusable asset to support system development and evolution.
