Senior Design (SD) is a course in which students complete a capstone project prior to graduation. More specifically, students tackle real-world technical challenges for project sponsors, which can span multiple semesters. Projects often cover a wide range of disciplines, and topics can range from full stack development to cybersecurity to virtual reality. Previous project examples include deep learning for image classification, full stack web services, virtual reality for public health, vulnerability analysis on virtual machines, compiler program analysis, voice-based study applications, augmented reality for hand-written character recognition, and dynamic resource generation for cyber defense, amongst others.
Please have a check sent to the following address:School of Computer and Cyber Sciences 1120 15th Street C/O-Regina White RV-1600 Augusta, GA 30912
Be sure to include the following information on the check:
Not work for hire: An SDP project cannot be treated as work for hire. The program is a learning experience for the students and a means for fostering collaborative relationships with potential future employees.
The project sponsorship is a gift to the School of Computer and Cyber Sciences: This contribution is not compensation for completion of the project to the satisfaction of the sponsor. Rather, it covers the costs of administrative overhead for the capstone program, travel expenses associated with the project, and/or costs for any required hardware/software, etc. that may be needed for project completion. If a project fails to meet expectations as defined at the outset of the course through collaboration between the project sponsor, course instructor, and team members, then that will be reflected in the grades earned by the team members for the course.
Thank you for your consideration, and we are looking forward to working with you to help shape the next generation of world-class industry professionals!
This capstone project involves programming a voice user interface (VUI) that allows medical students to review and/or study material in a hands-free manner. The goal is to create a basic question and answer template using Java, Python, or Node within the framework of the VUI that can be modified and scaled up as desired.
This capstone project involves rigorous and hands-on study of modern compiler analyses and program transformations, culminating in implementation of a transformation pass for the LLVM compiler
In this project, you will be designing a training module to educate new recruits about vulnerabilities and exploits and how to defend against them. You will need to build a virtual machine with these vulnerabilities that can be easily deployed, used repeatedly, and modified as necessary for training purposes, potentially on multiple operating systems.
This capstone project involves building a Virtual Reality interface to enhance diagnostic and decision-making skills of healthcare providers during acute stroke. The goal is to enable a variety of healthcare providers and students to practice the skills needed for optimal management of acute stroke patients. A major challenge in acute stroke management is making optimal, time-sensitive decisions.
As a result of the pandemic, nurses have shown a tremendous need in developing empathy in palliative care nursing. The goal is to develop a virtual reality simulation focusing on generating a better understanding of empathy before entering the industry to prepare the nurses for hands on experience in end-of-life care and interacting with the emotional loved ones of patients.
Process algebras (𝜋-calculus, CCS, Ambiant calculus, etc.) are an abstraction of concurrent systems useful to study, specify and verify distributed programs. This project is concerned with the implementation of such an abstraction for reversible programs: in short, imagine that we are designing a language to test that reversible computers behave “as expected”. We can then write a term describing what a program is supposed to do, and then check that the program indeed does what it is supposed to do, that is, matches its specification.
This project created a software to do the following two tasks: 1) Image Classification, whereby the DNN classifies a given image as a ‘positive image’ that contains a camouflaged human head target, or a ‘negative image’ that contains no target, and 2) Target segmentation, whereby the DNN outlines the image region containing a camouflaged head target.
Colleagues who are part of a professional services firm need an effective way to store, update, and product professional profiles for Client consideration. Think of these as configurable resumes. We desire a web-based product that will enable Colleagues to enter and maintain their professional skills, experiences, education and capabilities in an easy-to-use platform. This platform must also be able to quickly produce PDF versions of customizable profiles that can be shared.
