In recent years, faculty in the department have been actively involved in engaging students in research. For example,
With the support of the National Science Foundation, for many years, Dr. Dennis Mikkelson (emeritus faculty) supervised a number of students in creating software for visualizing data from neutron scattering experiments.
Dr. Wan Bae, partially supported by the National Science Foundation, has directed students in research on spatio-temporal data modeling and moving object data.
Dr. Greg Bard has directed students in cryptographic research.
With the support of the National Science Foundation, Dr. Chris Bendel has directed students in creating/modifying software to make algebraic computations.
With the support of the National Science Foundation, Dr. Seth Berrier is directing students in photogrammetry research.
Dr. Seth Dutter has directed students in algebraic geometry research.
Dr. Keith Wojciechowski has directed students in applied mathematics research, particularly numerical methods for solving differential equations.
