Computer Science Seminar

 Recent Lincoln Lutheran graduates who have gone on to pursue degrees in Computer Science and Computer Engineering have received starting job offers for up to $100,000. Some of them start receiving offers before they even graduate from college. The University of Nebraska reports, not only a 100% employment rate for their Computer graduates, but that they could place three times as many graduates in jobs.

If you're interested in working with computers, Computer Science or Computer Engineering might be a great carreer choice for you. But how do you know if you'd be interested? Mr. Sommerer, in conjunction with the Nebraska Computer Science Teachers Association has helped put together a one hour seminar where people who are working in the area computer science will demonstrate some of the exciting, real world applications that they are involved with. 

 

  • Dr. Mehmet Can Vuran will discuss how wireless sensor networks help solve problems such as improving crop yields with in agriculture and monitoring endangered migratory birds in ecology. He will also present his on-going work on designing the next-generation wireless networks for affordable Internet access.
  • Dr. Leen-Kiat Soh will present multiagent-based simulations to solve real-time problems in complex environments.
  • Dr. Carrick Detweiler will present his work on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) ranging from enabling structural health monitoring of bridges to modern dance performances developed with the Lied Center and the Pilobolus Dance Company.

The seminar is free, but registration is required (seating is limited). The seminar will be held December 11th at 7pm at the LPS Information Technology Focus Program (285 South 678th Street). You can sign up at EventBright.com.

Lincoln Lutheran offers classes in computer science on a rotating basis with Programming 1 & 2 offered next year. This would be a great way to find out if you might be interested in those classes or in a career in Computer Science or Computer Engineering. See Mr. Sommerer for more details on the seminar or for more information about Lincoln Lutheran's computer classes.
