Outstanding Senior Award

Each year the Faculty of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) award four Outstanding Senior Awards. This process is never easy given the many excellent and accomplished students in our program. This year, we have decided that the 2021 Computer Science and Engineering Outstanding Senior Awards go to:

  • Hunter Damron: Computer Science Outstanding Senior Award.
  • Warren Beagle: Computer Information Systems Outstanding Senior Award.
  • James Johnson: Computer Engineering Outstanding Senior Award.
  • Niharika Pandala. Computer Engineering SCSPE Award.

All awardees will be honored at the University Awards Day ceremony. In addition, Pandala will be honored at a special awards banquet of the South Carolina Society of Professional Engineers

Alumni Spotlight: Aaron Hark

Hark worked in the Office of Student Conduct after finishing his undergraduate degree in computer science in 2002. It was during this time that he saw a need for a better way of record keeping and data management. Shortly after leaving the office, Hark founded Maxient with his wife Candice. Hark said the couple didn’t know it at the time, but the company would soon grow to serve more than 1,000 colleges and universities by providing conduct management software for student discipline, academic integrity, care and concern records, Title IX matters and more.

Bakos leading study that applies machine learning in new domain

Jason Bakos of the College of Engineering and Computing has received a grant from the National Science Foundation to design processors capable of real-time machine learning of the behavior and response of high-rate dynamic systems. This study is expected to produce technology that will improve the reaction time of high-energy systems such as ballistics, airbag deployment and high-speed vehicle control.
