Computer Science faculty members Keith Vertanen, Scott Kuhl, and Myounghoon “Philart” Jeon, were recently awarded the 2018 Paul Williams Seed Grant from the Institute of Computing and Cybersystems (ICC). The grant will give the researchers the opportunity to develop a research program that could be eligible and attractive for long-term and higher-level funding from external . . .
Problem: Scheduling learning center appointments. Solution: Apply education; develop online scheduling program. Maybe you’ve heard the claim that Michigan Technological University students are crazy smart. In case you needed proof, meet Caden Sumner, a third-year who is double majoring in computer science and psychology. He’s also a coach at the Michigan Tech Multiliteracies Center (MTMC) . . .
Two of the Computer Science graduate students attended the Graduate Research Colloquium hosted by the GSG this week. This is MTU’s largest graduate research showcase and competition with grad students presenting more than 60 research papers.
