As a senior enrolled in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, students are required to complete senior projects. These projects serve to demonstrate their knowledge gained over the course of their studies. These projects are oriented toward the improvement of current products, processes and problems or the creation of a new product to solve a current issue.
The 2012 SECS and CSI Senior Design Poster Expo took TUC by storm on Wednesday, May 16. Seniors from both programs presented their innovative designs to judges in hopes of winning. Representative projects follow.
Seniors Chris Nixon, Jorge Moscat and Yemi Oyediran developed a web-based application that captures Twitter's feelings towards the 2012 Presidental Candidate nominees, Barack Obama (Democrat) and Mitt Romney (Republican). Using the data that’s continuously collected from Twitter and their ranking algorithm, they reveal the nominees’ true "approval score". Nixon has been recruited by Tapjoy, Inc. for after graduation, Moscat will join Deloitte Development LLC and Oyediran will continue to work for the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
