Senior Project

This course is the culmination of a computer science/information technology major's specialized training at Sacred Heart University. It is based on using and further developing the skills and knowledge gained in previous courses. Students originate research, design, develop, implement, present and defend a major project. The course meets collectively for three weeks in order to hone writing and communication skills. Then the student proceeds individually or in teams under the guidance of the course coordinator and a faculty mentor.
