Undergraduate Research

Students who are interested in undergraduate research should contact faculty directly to see if their interests align with the student’s proposed work. An undergraduate may earn 3 hours of course credit for research by enrolling in CSc 4982 (Undergraduate Research in Computer Science); authorization is required before registering for this course.

Student projects are eligible to be presented at the annual Georgia State Undergraduate Research Conference, an interdisciplinary event that highlights undergraduate research taking place across campus. The Undergraduate Research Conference is organized by Georgia State’s Honors College.

beerUndergraduate major Djuan Blue recently completed a research project under the direction of associate professor Michael Weeks.

Blue built a system that automates the process of homebrewing beer using an Arduino-based embedded system controlled by an Android application. Dr. Weeks got the idea for the project while brewing a batch of beer at home and suggested it to Blue, who had previously taken his embedded systems class.

Before graduating from Georgia State, Blue presented his project at the Georgia State Undergraduate Research Conference. His work was later featured in an article in Georgia State University Magazine. Blue now works for General Motors as a software developer.
