UMass Dartmouth senior Computer Science students received real-world experience as part of their Senior Capstone Software Engineering Project. The class (CIS 488/489) runs for two semesters and is taught by Professor Jan Bergandy. A recent article published in the NUWC newsletter NUWSCOPE (June 2008) elaborates on the successful collaboration with the following excerpts:
"Over the past academic year 2007-2008, UMass Dartmouth students partnered with the System Validation and Acceptance Branch of the Naval Undersea Warfare Center's Combat Systems Department on a software engineering project entitled 'Test & Evaluation, Logging, and Analysis Tool (TELAT).'
The objective of the partnership was to fulfill the senior Computer Science Design Project requirements, and at the same??time, provide a useful automated testing tool for NUWC.
The automated tool TELAT developed by the students over the year long design course??automates the process of recording, storing, and analyzing reliability data collected during System Operational Readiness Tests conducted on submarine combat control systems.??TELAT includes a web-based interface to the data repository and several automated data analysis (plotting) tools."
