Frederick is part of the Washington, DC, Technology area, so CS majors have many opportunities to gain experience, academic credit, and some income through internships. This past year, 14 different CS students had internships at 11 different sites.

On July 28, 2015, adjunct professor Carol Jim (BA ’06, MS ’10) successfully defended her Ph.D. dissertation entitled “Investigation of the Cell Labeling Procedure and the Appearance of Monozygotic Twins” at The George Washington University. Her research investigated the mechanism behind the origins of monozygotic multiple births by implementing proposed cell division labeling models in Python. The results of the models led to a prediction that monozygotic quadruplets are not all genetically identical but rather, are two pairs of monozygotic twins where the pairs slightly differ.
Graduate student James Brannan, a veteran Java programmer, will lead the summer long group-study towards JAVA SE 7 certification. The first meeting took place on June 8, 2015.
