SE2023 student Vikram Subramanian won first place in the ACM undergraduate student research competition at ICSE 2020 for his work titled An empirical study of first-time open source contributors on Github, which was supervised by Prof Mei Naggapan. Great work!
SE2021 capstone project Tutturu.tv is now one of the Velocity $50k portfolio companies, with their platform for shared web browsing. The team includes Philip Scott, Amby Balaji, Declan Goncalves, and Keer Liu. Congratulations!
SE students Ethan Chen, Samuel Hao, Emily Tao, William Wen, and Yifei Zhang are part of the team on Flatten.ca, which is a website to crowd-source COVID-19 symptom distribution. This data might help researchers and the public to flatten the curve. The team also includes students from UWaterloo CS and other universities.
SE2020 students Jasper Chapman-Black, Céline O'Neil and Sean Purcell won first-place in the Canadian Engineering Competition Programming Challenge. The team developed an algorithm to simulate a drone reconstructing a broken 3D model, determined how to move the pieces back into place and created a visualization for it.
SE2020 students Jasper Chapman-Black, Céline O'Neil and Sean Purcell won first place in the Ontario Engineering Competition (OEC) Programming Competition. The team developed a system to control an hour-by-hour simulation of power generation in Ontario. “We combined a control system and a linear programming solver to pick the optimal combination of power sources to use, minimizing cost and CO2 emissions," says Purcell.
