The Computer Science Programs Advisory Board met on April 3, 2015. Twenty-six members representing local industry, government, education, and current students met with the computer science faculty and the Dean of the Graduate School. Board members were updated on the ABET accreditation application process and status and reviewed undergraduate and graduate program education objectives (PEOs). Graduate students Danny Watson and James Brannon presented their research projects in computational informatics and data mining.
On March 3, the Robotics & Intelligent Systems class had two visitors from Dexter Industries (www.dexterindustries.com), the makers of the robotic platform used in the course. The visitors wanted to see how they can better support our activities and were very interested to see how we use their Raspberry Pi-based GoPiGo robots in the classroom.
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.
