This year the 180 Seniors in our Capstone course developed 36 awesome applications for Industry or USC clients, or for themselves. The tech breakdown includes:
- 15 webapps: Node, Angular, firebase, meteor, django, react, ASP.NET, AWS, Google Cloud
- 14 mobile apps: Android, iOS, ionic, react native, firebase cloud
- 2 virtual reality aps: Unity
- 5 desktop/hardware applications: Windows, C#, Java, Linux, Qt
They have also recorded video demonstrations of their apps which you can watch online. We are always looking for clients for next year's Capstone course. If you want an app built for you, for free, click that link to learn more.
The winning team for this year's Backers and Hackers is Tiffany Abernathy, Cayla Przygoda, Jaime Areheart (Backer) for their app GamersCentral, an app for gamers to get connected and discover new games. Backers and Hackers is a completely student-run initiative organized by the Entrepreneurship Club and the College of Engineering and Computing at USC. The program brings together Columbia’s entrepreneurial community and USC’s mobile app development students to transform app ideas into reality.
We are proud to announce that Noemi Glaeser has received a Goldwater Scholarship award. She is one of four USC students to receive the award this year. Nationally, 211 Goldwater Scholars and 281 Honorable Mentions were selected on the basis of academic merit from a field of 1,280 mathematics, science, and engineering students, nominated by the faculties of 455 colleges and universities nationwide. The Goldwater Scholarship is awarded nationally to sophomores and juniors pursuing bachelors’ degrees in natural sciences, mathematics, or engineering and who intend to pursue a career in research and/or college-level teaching.
Each year the Faculty of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) award four Outstanding Senior Awards. This process is never easy given the many excellent and accomplished students in our program. After much deliberation, we have decided that the 2018 Computer Science and Engineering Outstanding Senior Awards go to:
Computer Science Outstanding Senior Awards: Caleb Kisby
Computer Information Systems Outstanding Senior Award: George Clayton
Computer Engineering Outstanding Senior Award: Boyd Compton
Computer Engineering SCSPE Award: Wesley Cherry
All awardees will be honored at the University Awards Day ceremony. In addition, Wesley will be honored at a special awards banquet of the South Carolina Society of Professional Engineers.
