EPCC Computer Science students participate in an international symposium for their award-winning project.

Two EPCC Computer Science students, Ivan Alonso and Emilian Garcia, presented their winning assignment, “The Fingerprint Assignment: An Interdisciplinary Assessment for CS I Education” at the Technical Symposium of the Special Interest Group in Computer Science Education in Portland, Oregon. With the guidance of their professor, Dr. Christian Servin, the duo showcased their work on March 20th through the 23rd at the symposium. The team’s assignment was recognized as one of the top six globally for the year, marking the first time the session accepted an assignment from a community college.

Alonso and Garcia acknowledged that the project presented challenges but ultimately provided them with a deeper understanding of computer science. Alonso shared that engaging in this research allowed him to discover knowledge beyond the classroom, exposing him to real-world applications and challenges that expanded his appreciation for the complexities of the field. The experience was enriching for both students, highlighting the value of hands-on research in their academic journey.
