Spring 2015 is set for some of largest enrollment in our graduate programs. On January 14, 23 of this spring's new CS, IT, and Cybersecurity graduate students enjoyed supper in the computer science department's office during the Graduate School Orientation for the Spring 2015 semester. New students this semester came not just from Frederick and the surrounding area, but from as far away as China, India, and Saudi Arabia. Over half of them are incoming computer science graduate students, and most of them will be full time.
Professor George Dimitoglou and senior James Blaney (B.S. '15) are working to develop a submersible temperature sensor data logger and software for the collection and distribution of the results. Their work is part of Project Boost, a collaborative project through the CCWS with with Frederick High, the FCPS Earth and Space Science Lab, the Hood College Environmental Sciences program and the Computer Science program.
A paper "Simulation and Performance Analysis of Stadium Crowd Evacuation".was presented in the CAINE 2014 conference on 13-15 October 2014 in New Orleans. The paper reported the results from a research project related to crowd-dynamics simulation The project was directed by Dr. Dimitoglou and exercised different crowd movement and algorithms to determine the most efficient stadium egress strategy.

Eleven Class of 2014 CS majors presented their Senior Projects on Friday, May 9, at 4:30 PM in Hodson Tech 131. These presentations were the culmination of a year of work. The five team projects covered a variety of topics and techniques. Fellow Students, faculty, friends, and families were all invited.

According to an article in the Yahoo Education section, the BS in Computer Science is the major with the most pre-graduation job offers.

Several CS & IT graduate students and faculty appeared in a recent news show on the Alhurra TV station.

The students, all from Saudi Arabia, are studying in the US with full scholarships administered through the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission.

Rattanaphan Boonbutra (M.S. '13), a current graduate student in computer science, has won a prize in the 2013 National microMedic Contest. The national contest was hosted and sponsored by the U.S. Army Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TATRC), Carnegie Mellon Entertainment Technology Center, and Parallax Inc.

Boonbutra's award was announced on October 15th under the Education Division Winners category, as a Specialist Rank Winner, for the Mobile Doctor-In-A-Box (mDocInABox) project and comes with a $500 hardware prize.
