Real-world projects are the focus of CSE. Students work on multiple group projects over the course of their four years in the program—and they study group dynamics in a class dedicated to that purpose. We put this much emphasis on group work because we believe it is important for computer scientists to be able to interact and communicate well with other people.
The CSE program is about more than just real-world projects, though. Students work on interesting project of all kinds from the outset including artificial intelligence design, animation projects, simulations, and more. Students also have the opportunities to build fun little games with the knowledge they gain from class. A few of these projects are listed below: (Interesting note: all of these projects are first-year computer science projects).
At Taylor, each senior completes a senior project during J-Term of their final year. These projects are often ideas that students have floating around, but their senior project time finally gives them the ability to sit down and complete their ideas. Here are some of the projects that students worked on in 2013:
- RoboCup Soccer
- Sharing the gospel through Android OS
- Proffesional Animation Techniques
- Small Group Finder
While some projects have been in cooperation with organizations such as Wycliffe Bible Translators, Lockheed Martin, General Electric, and Eli Lily, others are simply fun ideas that students explore. Also, many projects that our students and faculty are working on can be viewed at the Taylor Center for Missions Computing. Here is a list of a few more of these projects:
- Battle Bot Bonanza!
- Cell Classification Research
- Charitable Planning
- FishSim—Swarm Intelligence Research
- HCJB Radio Planting and Development Database
