Engineering firm awards $100,000 contract to Rowan University computer science team
Date: January 21, 2010
Mission Solutions Engineering (MSE), of Arlington, Va., and Moorestown, has awarded a $100,000 one-year contract to Rowan University to help the firm improve the capabilities of a software system called Advanced Display Infrastructure (ADI).
Dr. Adrian Rusu, an associate professor of computer science, will head Rowan's team of four undergraduate and graduate students on the project titled "Visualization and Software Engineering Strategies for Tactical Decisions Advances."
Ultimately, MSE will use the Rowan work to promote its ADI product and to cultivate more business from military service branches.? As well as benefiting MSE, the collaboration benefits Rowan computer science students, who will gain "real-world" experience.? MSE is in effect a client of the students, who must deliver a product, hold meetings and present a final report to MSE management.?
MSE will officially kick off the project with Rowan's Computer Science team with a function and tour on Jan. 21 at 1:30 p.m. in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences in Robinson Hall.
