The answer to when the first computer was made seems to be dependent on what definition of computer you want to use. The abacus is an ancient device for mathematics which is traceable to around 2700 BC and may have been used even earlier. Charles Babbage's Analytical Engine is often referred to as the first programmable math calculator but was mechanical and never actually built. The electronic computation device first appeared in 1939 at Iowa State University and was called the ABC or Atanasoff-Berry Computer.
The first ever computer was made during World War II. It was invented by a group of scientist and engineers from the University of Pennsylvanian. The computer was first a digital calculator called the ENIAC.
