Research and Industry Opportunities

Undergraduate Computer Science Research

Valpo’s undergraduate research program for computer science was established before computing and information sciences became a department distinct from mathematics and statistics.

Faculty/student joint projects date back to the 1990s, and includes work with NASA on amplification and information retention with data from the X-ray portion of the spectrum.

Multi-year research efforts often see junior or senior students helping to mentor freshmen and sophomore. For any level of student, these projects allow students to learn about the research process, which can be a key skill for both further professional development either in industry or in graduate study.

Work from these projects can be exhibited at sub-discipline specific academic forums, Valpo’s own Symposium (SOURCE), or at student-focused events like the Butler Undergraduate Research Conferences.
