President David L. Boren Visits CS Software Studio Student Presentations

President David L. Boren and Dean Tom Landers enjoy listening to the student presentations at the Software Studio's project report out.
Sridhar Radhakrishnan, director of the School of Computer Science, had an idea to develop a Software Studio, a working environment designed to help students explore high-level computer programming, develop computer programs, collaborate with non-computer disciplines and connect to business professionals.

“The Software Studio gives students from all areas of study the access and support to bring their big ideas to digital life,” Radhakrishnan said. “This is not organized by a professor, but rather by groups of students who have the desire to learn and apply computer science.”


In the program’s first year, three student teams developed apps for mobile devices and one team is developing an interactive video game to address bullying. One team will begin beta testing their app, a road condition monitoring system called Siren, with more than 1,700 semi-trucks prior to the official launch in February 2015.
