Students and faculty in the computer science department are very active in research. There are numerous new and ongoing student-faculty research projects, independent projects, and group projects. Students present their work at different research forums, both on-campus and off-campus, and there are several faculty research projects with active student participation.
Current on-going faculty research projects involving regular student participation include:
- The MiddGuard Project led by Christopher Andrews. The project aims to develop a flexible web framework for synchronous and asynchronous collaborative visual analytics tools. The framework supports the creation of generic and specialized models and views that can be combined by the analyst into a customized analytic workspace.
- The MiddROVR project led by Amy Briggs and Daniel Scharstein.
Computer science students have also been very successful in programming competitions.
