Publish Date: 05/19/2012

Working as a team on a project for their senior capstone course, four computer science undergraduate students were among the winners at the inaugural Charles W. Steger Design Competition.  According to the press release about the event, "The Charles W. Steger Design Competition was inspired by the June 2011 grand opening of the research center which represents a significant investment in Virginia Tech’s research mission. The center’s design and infrastructure support the computational research that is being conducted by Virginia Tech institutes and centers housed in the building." 

The four students were a project team in Professor Steve Harrison's Design of Information class during the fall 2011 semester.  The team consisted of December 2011 graduate James McIntyre, May 2012 graduates Joseph Liversedge and Scott Fernanez, and future graduate Luke Marrs.
