SUNY Potsdam launches Computer Science Action on Tech Outreach program
POTSDAM -- SUNY Potsdam recently announced the Computer Science Action on Tech Outreach (CATO) program.
The initiative gives computer science majors opportunities to participate in “state-of-the-art, industry-sponsored projects as part of their curriculum,” the school said.The Department of Computer Science is using the college's Potsdam Connect software program to help employers engage in a variety of applied learning activities. Potsdam's computer science majors have experienced successful careers ever since the department first opened its doors in 1969, and have leveraged the power of relationships along the way.
A significant number of computer science graduates have formed a robust industry network that helps populate the department's board of advisors and provides contacts for developing state-of-the-art projects for SUNY Potsdam computer science majors to work on.
Student projects through the CATO program will range from small, shorter-term efforts to possible capstone experiences -- a degree requirement that gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to apply the knowledge and skills they have acquired in the classroom and lab, typically through an internship under the direction of an industry sponsor or under the direction of CS faculty.
Students will hone their skills in developing software linkages between platforms or programs, web-data extraction and analysis, storage and access of experimental data, user-interface development, digital simulation and other expertise.
