News from the Department
Robot Day covered by local media
Multiple Computer Science students (as well as students from electrical and mechanical engineering) were recently featured on WDAY’s and KVRR’s nightly news when both stations came out to visit ‘Robot Day’. During this, students showed off their semester-long projects in CSCI 491 and 783 to the classmates and, with WDAY and KVRR’s arrival, to the public. Projects featured on the newscasts included drones, self-assembling robots, human mood and movement sensing systems.
MPR highlights NSDU's work with drones
NDSU Student Brady Goenner and Computer Science Asst. Professor Jeremy Straub were recently featured in a news story by Minnesota Public Radio. MPR reporter Dan Gunderson’s article titled “To see the future of drones, look to student competitors” highlights the importance of student work to advancing technologies like UAVs. Goenner’s work on the drone project is part of a contest entry, which Straub is advising. He is working in conjunction with computer science students Abdullah Almosalami and Brian Kaldova, along with undergraduate students from computer, electrical and mechanical engineering. Goenner and fellow undergraduate Tyler Blanchard started work on this contest entry as part of their robotics term project for Straub’s CSCI 491 course.
Ph.D. student presents at the CalPoly CubeSat Workshop
Abdulaziz Alanazi, a Ph.D. student in the NDSU Computer Science Department, has recently returned from San Luis Obispo, California where he made a presentation at the CalPoly CubeSat Workshop. His poster, entitled "CubeSat Systems Engineering Methodology and Tools for Reducing Mission Failure" presented an overview of the work that he is conducting on his dissertation topic. While at CalPoly, Alanazi conducted a survey that will help him to further refine his work by incorporating information based on the experiences of CubeSat developers at the conference.

Effective with the second summer session 2016 and continuing into the fall semester and beyond, there are no more Distance and Continuing Education (DCE) courses. Instead, you should consider online courses, if you need to or want to take a course off-campus. Tuition for those courses will be the instate tuition for all students just as it used to be for DCE courses. Tuition waivers do not apply to those courses.
