Research

At Wheaton, students are busy performing sentiment analysis on large groups of texts, building mobile apps for others, hiding surfaces in OpenGL, learning Unity’s game engine, applying machine learning to strings of DNA or Anglo-Saxon text, deploying voice-activated Kiosks, playing system admin on their own server, and working with sets of toys = {drones, 3D printers, laser cutters, motion-capture and eye-tracking glasses, and a programmable loom}.

Wheaton’s 11 to 1 student-faculty ratio, on-campus help finding intern experiences, and Wheaton’s curriculum highlighting connections among the traditional disciplines provide unique opportunities for undergraduates to do research in computing.
