Computing Sciences students at Elon have numerous opportunities to participate in experiential learning through research.
Research opportunities may involve work on campus with Elon professors or work at other institutions. Recent students have worked on improving GPS for phone-based computer gaming, understanding and developing design principles for digital magazines, data mining to understand online communities, and addressing mobile touchscreen security mechanisms,
Students may also elect to participate in research opportunities off campus including ones supported by the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program (REU).
Several students have presented their work at regional and national conferences. David Williams '13 and Professor Duke Hutchings won the Best Conference Paper award at the 2013 Americas Conference on Information Systems.
Computing Sciences students and faculty members regularly participate in research supported by SURE (Summer Undergraduate Research Experiences), a program sponsored by the Elon Undergraduate Research Program.
Students routinely present their research on campus at the annual SURF (Student Undergraduate Research Forum).
