Faculty & Student Research

Each student in the Department of Mathematics, Computer Science and Physics engages in a large undergraduate research project prior to graduation as part of the Senior Capstone requirement. Many times this research leads to new results or novel approaches to previously known results. Students work under the supervision of a faculty mentor on a one (or two) semester project that culminates in a paper and a public presentation.


Josh Bradley and Dr. Sherif Rashad are currently working with the OPNET Modeler Wireless Suite to create new algorithms for 4G network prediction.  Click  here for more information.
