This year the Department of Computer Science will celebrate its 50th Anniversary. To demonstrate and display our department’s innovation and computing prowess we are hosting a competition for students to collaborate, express creativity, and solve computing problems. We want students to work on creating a project which solves a problem. There is a large variety of problems in computer science and across other disciplines that can be solved and you can help create a solution to them You are strongly encouraged to consider not only problems within our discipline, but also across disciplines.
Your project may be something that you have already started working on for a class, a research project or independent study which you think could be expanded, or something new your team would like to create. There are no restrictions on the type of software system you can develop – it could be research, creating a new programming language, developing a web or mobile application, or a new data analysis system. It just needs to solve a real-world problem.
Computer Science faculty will work on setting up teams with personnel in industry in the project's domain, or researchers working on similar problems, to consult with as you work on your projects.
