SENIOR PROJECTS

As a culmination of the computer science major, each senior completes an independent project. Each student describes his or her project idea in a formal project proposal. Projects typically involve the design, implementation, testing and documentation of a software system that builds on earlier coursework both inside and outside the department. Students are mentored by a faculty member and meet regularly in groups to present their work and to discuss related topics such as the ethical implications of their work.

The abstracts from completed senior projects can be found here.
