Senior Capstone Experience

Majors in computer science should have a thesis topic selected and approved by the end of the junior year. For students with double majors in  computer science, one thesis may satisfy the thesis requirement for both majors.

Computer Science  

Each major will research and write a senior thesis with the supervision of a faculty member and will make an oral presentation on the thesis that includes a demonstration of the developed software, if any, at a departmental seminar.

Departmental Support

Weekly seminars are scheduled to provide information about careers, graduate school, thesis ideas, and research areas, as well as to enable each major to make the required presentation on the thesis or programming project.

The Senior Capstone Experience is graded as Pass, Fail, or Honors.
