Taking Computer Science to New Heights
For the past several years, students in the department have been heavily focused on drone programming. Thanks to a generous donation, the department was able to purchase a drone cage, allowing students to better test and troubleshoot their drones outdoors.
Cracking the Code to Social Distancing
For Brandon Purvis, undergraduate research at UNI was a career-changing experience. A year-long stint as a researcher with assistant professor of computer science Dheryta Jaisinghani has him considering graduate school after they developed a preliminary system for enforcing social distancing guidelines in classrooms using the revolutionary field known as the Internet of Things.
