Description 
Computer Science Students often learn PRACTICAL skills of programming and algorithm design, and THEORETICAL material such as discrete math and algorithms. What is sometimes lacking is seeing how the THEORY can apply to the PRACTICE. In this program students get to do research projects with faculty where they use theoretical tools to solve real world problems.
Qualifications 
All undergrads who have a basic understanding of Algorithms, Discrete Mathematics, and Computer Programming are encouraged to apply.
