Senior Project - Overview

CCI’s Senior Project is part of a multi-term capstone experience involving in-depth study and application of computing and informatics. Students work in teams to develop a significant product requiring use of a development process that includes planning, specification, design, implementation, evaluation, and documentation. Projects are often conceived by external stakeholders who guide the requirements process and ultimately use the resulting application. Groups may be interdisciplinary with students from varied departments within the College of Engineering and the Digital Media Program.

Projects are judged in a multi-level competition on originality, compliance with software engineering principles, completion, and their successful deployment.

CCI’s 2019-2020 Senior Project Showcase, presented by Ciright, is pleased to announce the top 18 teams. Winners will be announced after the final competition on May 26, 2020 and the overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams will receive prize money.

The top 3 projects in the following categories will also be recognized: corporate-sponsored, entrepreneurial, humanitarian, games, and research.
