Computer Science Projects
Research in Robotics
Dr. Wei Li
The summer REVS-UP program in robotics will offer high school students an opportunity to conduct robotics research. Robotics is an interdisciplinary subject crossing over computer science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering. This program emphasizes a hands-on approach with close faculty mentoring and develops the students' skills of sensor integration, algorithm design and programming.
Explorations in Network Security and Vulnerability Analysis
Dr. Melissa Danforth
This program focuses on several issues within information assurance and computer security. Basic topics will be discussed and the students will conduct simulations and experiments relating to the topics. This year will focus on incident detection, prevention, and response with topics such as vulnerability scanning, designing networks to minimize attacker movement, intrusion detection/prevention systems, incident response, and pen testing. Key focus will be paid to professional ethics and legal uses of security tools.
