Haythem at Monte Carlo Methods In Artificial Intelligence workshop.

Haythem Memmi, a recent transfer student from Tunisia, has stayed busy with classes and undergraduate research at Montana Tech since his arrival 7 months ago. He has taken nine computer science classes, started a research project with Dr. Vertanen, attended a Monte Carlo Methods In Artificial Intelligence workshop, and been accepted at a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program at Texas State University.

Over his spring break, Haythem received an all expenses paid trip to Oregon State University to attend a Monte Carlo Methods In Artificial Intelligence short course . He was one of twenty students accepted into the course from over 200 applicants. Haythem greatly enjoyed learning about Monte Carlo methods while working with other students from across the country.  The picture shows Haythem (center) at the workshop.

Michele Van Dyne of the Computer Science Department attended a two-day workshop at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell in January. The workshop was titled “Performamatics”, and the topic was one of teaching computational constructs with the use of music. The workshop was set up for attendance in interdisciplinary pairs, so Nathan Fortier, a Montana Tech Software Engineering graduate and musician, attended with Dr. Van Dyne. Nathan is currently a graduate student in computer science at MSU. The trip was paid for by an NSF grant which the workshop presenters received.

Two CS/SE Students Teach Computer Game Development Course

E-mail Print PDF

studentProfsThere are two areas of computer science and software engineering that are "hot buttons" for perspective applicants: game development and robotics.

A few years ago the Technical Communications (TC) Department hired a new assistant professor whose PhD was in the area of video games. With her assistance the CS Department created a Game Development option. Unfortunately, the TC professor choose to move back to her native Canada, and her replacement does not teach game development. Fortunately, two of our students, were very interested and offered to teach this year's offering of a game development course. With sponsorship from Prof. Ackerman, Senior Zach Wormgoor and Junior Matt Morris are doing just that. Some of the initial materials for their course can be seen at http://katie.mtech.edu/classes/csci291/.
