The Department of Computer Science and Engineering invites university faculty and staff to submit software project ideas for its 2018-2019 Senior Design course.

Students enrolled in the Senior Design course spend two semesters working in teams of five or six on a software project sponsored by members of local industry or university faculty/staff. The course provides students with the hands-on educational and professional experience that comes with contributing to a real-world project.

Previous projects have served a variety of fields and industries and have been developed with many types of technologies and coding languages. Offered project types include mobile apps, data analytics and visualization, web-based systems, gaming technologies, machine learning systems, and more.

All projects are priced at $15,000, which is a fraction of what professional firms typically charge.

As only a limited number of projects can be completed within the course each year, not all submissions will be accepted. Submissions will be reviewed and selected by a panel of course advisers.

Project submissions are due to the department by July 27, 2018.

To submit a project proposal, fill out the form found here.

Questions can be sent to cse-seniordesign@unl.edu.
