Faculty work with students on cutting-edge research projects in areas such as artificial intelligence, parallel computing, big data, and computer game design. Recent projects include:
Automated Database Reports
Karen Postupac '19 worked with Dr. Lory Al Moakar to improve the timeliness of automated database reports. Karen presented her work at the Penn State Behrend-Sigma Xi Undergraduate Research and Creative Accomplishment Conference, winning first place in the computer science category for their presentation “Making Database Management Systems Manageable: User-friendly Automatic Report Generation.”
Waypoint Generation Algorithm
Josh Walton '16 and Ron Jenkins '16 worked with Dr. Brian Dellinger on an algorithm for waypoint generation in computer games. Their work was reviewed and accepted for publication at the 30th International FLAIRS Conference.
Computer Vision Algorithms
Elizabeth Schwab '19, Nathaniel Sprecher '20, Logan Stahl '20, and Miriam Tan '20 worked with Dr. Britton Wolfe on computer vision algorithms for identifying and tracking ants in their natural habitat using a mobile robot. This project is a collaboration with our biology, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering faculty. Initial evaluations of several algorithms were presented at the Penn State Behrend-Sigma Xi Undergraduate Research and Creative Accomplishment Conference.
In addition to research projects with Grove City College faculty, students have opportunities to participate in Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) programs across the nation during the summer.
All of our seniors work in teams on a year-long project to envision, design, and implement an application of their choosing.
Our award-winning Department of Entrepreneurship provides support for teams who are interested in commercializing their products.
