Computer Science and Information Technology Student Research
Your academic experience goes beyond the classroom with opportunities for discovery and inquiry. Students will have chances to work with a CSIT faculty research supervisor to learn and practice how to develop research topics and conclude research findings.
You’ll also have the chance to network with professionals by attending and presenting at conferences, submitting work to publications, and developing positive relationships with faculty mentors and peers. And you’ll build communication and disciplinary skills, as well as information literacy that will help you stand out in the competitive job market.
