Semester Project Competition

For Spring 2022, this event is canceled.

Please participate and encourage students in the College of Engineering Research Showcase on April 14th


General Information:

The CSE department will host Semester Project Competition(s) as a showcase of what students can accomplish in their courses during the semester. These events are primarily aimed at MS students, however, PhD students who are not presenting their dissertation-level research, or advanced undergraduates are also encouraged to apply for presentation. Additionally, these presentations were organized as AI/Data-oriented competitions in previous semesters, so students with projects in those domains are encouraged to submit their projects and will also be considered. Depending on the quality of submissions, a limited number of industry representatives may be invited to observe the kind of work occurring in courses at in CSE or data-driven programs at UNT.

Past 2021 Events:

For the student presenters, the goal is to present what they have accomplished in class with little or no additional preparation - we have these each semester after all. The initial submission of the project can be done quickly, consisting of a short title, names of people involved, and a short description. Selected groups will be given time to refine their submission, and view what other selected groups have entered.

The presentations are only 5 minutes each and generally consist of materials already prepared as part of class project presentations to demonstrate what has been accomplished by the team. At most 8 teams will be selected to present. At the conclusion of each event, those in attendance will vote on the winner, which will be recorded and featured on the Semester Project Presentations event page (this page, or a future page on the CSE website).
