SC Education Lottery Athlete of the Week

The College of Engineering and Computing congratulates Alex Burrell on being named the SC Education Lottery Athlete of the Week. Alex is a member of the Gamecock Baseball team, #33 Left-handed pitcher, who recently graduated this May. In his CSCE 492 project he was part of a team programming an Epidemiological Calculator for the iPhone/iPad which is meant to help researchers in the field perform calculations that they would otherwise need to do by hand.

Keep an eye out for #33 at the College World Series in Omaha starting on June 18!

Student Scholarship Winners

The department is pleased to award the Christopher J. Gintz Computer Science Undergraduate Award to Mr. Michael C. Helms for his outstanding academic performance and exemplary character. The amount of the award is $1,000.

The department is also pleased to announce that Yu Cao and Jeremiah Shepherd have been awarded travel grants to attend the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition 2011 and the Foundation of Digital Games (FDG), respectively. The CSE Department is proud of your accomplishments!

Senior Faculty Position Opening in Safety-Critical Systems

The College of Engineering and Computing at the University of South Carolina seeks to fill one tenure-track position at a senior rank in computer science and engineering. The position, in conjunction with corresponding positions in electrical engineering and mechanical engineering, is intended to establish a national center of excellence in safety critical systems, especially for aerospace applications. Particular areas of specialization include software engineering, computational modeling, sensing and control, and condition-based maintenance. Requirements include a Ph.D.

Power Saving Software for High Performance Computing

As appeared in Campus Technology:

After trying out a new, free power saver utility on his laptop, a high performance computing administrator at the University of South Carolina has implemented an enterprise edition of the same software on a large set of computers and reaped dramatic energy savings. Paul Sagona, a member of the IT organization in the College of Engineering and Computing at the university, has deployed Granola Enterprise, a program from MiserWare, on 250 stand-alone computers.

"This is another facet of our energy leadership. The software was initially developed by Kirk Cameron while a faculty member in our department. He is now at Virginia Tech." added Dr. Huhns.

Dr. Buell receives NEH Grant.

Prof. Duncan Buell has been awared a research grant for his project "History Simulation for Teaching Early Modern British History," by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Discovery Day Winners

Several of our undergraduate Magellan scholarship students have also won special mentions for their Discovery Day presentations on their research. They are:

  • Matthew Zimmermann, Breland Miley, and Will Reade, who won first prize for their presentation of their project Personal Automated Scheduling System
  • Jason Isenhower, won second prize for his poster presentation Using Smartphones to Monitor Wireless Network Health

Dr. Buell in Voting Machines Forum

Our very own Duncan Buell, shown at center on the photo, appeared on this article on the Post and Courier about the voting machines used here in South Carolina. From the article:

Duncan Buell, University of South Carolina computer science and engineering professor (center), said South Carolina uses the identical voting system that has been discredited in Ohio. He joined Vic Rawl (left) and state Democratic Party Executive Committee member Kay Koonce in a panel discussion about voting machines Thursday at North Charleston City Hall.

Breakthrough in Understanding Human Evolution Due to Computational Genomics


The fragile regions in mammals’ genomes that are thought to play a key role in evolution go through a "birth and death" process, according to new work by University of South Carolina and University of California-San Diego researchers.

The study, published in the journal Genome Biology, could help researchers identify the current fragile regions in the human genome – information that may reveal how the human genome will evolve in the future.
