Student undergraduate research from years past
Computing Sciences students at Elon have had numerous opportunities to participate in experiential learning through research in recent years.

Other student research
Several students have also presented their research at the ACM Southeast Region Chapter Meeting in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Students may also elect to participate in research opportunities off campus including ones supported by the NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program (REU).
In 2004-05, the department offered research positions through a two year research contract from UNC. This program called "A Consortium to Promote Computational Science and High Performance Computing" started in June of 2004 and was led by Joel Hollingsworth and Dave Powell. During the summer of 2004, two students, Avery Edwards and Pramotte Malasitt, investigated the application of decision analysis tools to grid computing. Their work was leveraged in a special class taught in the Spring of 2005 called Intelligent Decision Making. Two full time summer research positions were available for the summer of 2005.
