Student Accomplishments

Redesigned CS Website

Yes, this website was built by students!

The 2018 CS and MIS Senior Class Project modernized the MMU CS website, incorporating current mobile-friendly technologies including Ruby on Rails, Bootstrap framework, MySQL, and JavaScript elements. The new website development technologies were driven by their simplicity in design, supportability, and time to completion for the project. The project also included the migration from a dedicated, bare metal server located in the CS Lab to a more robust virtual server. The new hosting environment provides a low-maintenance, high-availability platform for the website, enhancing reliability and performance while offering a cost-effective solution.

Computational Vision

During spring semester 2018 Joshua Jurgensmeier implemented the ORB-SLAM2 algorithm on Softbank Robotics’ Nao Robot. He solved the Monocular Visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (Mono V-Slam) problem. Joshua completed this faculty-student computer science research project through Mt. Mercy’s Pathways Scholarship Program.

In conjunction with the Nursing Department, over 30,000 lines of code were written for a Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Web application that simulates a realistic electronic health care system. This web application is used by the Nursing Department to train the nursing students. The project was named "Linda," in honor of the late Linda Groepper who was an Associate Professor of Nursing and Director of the Clinical Simulation Laboratory. Linda was developed by the CS/MIS Senior Class of 2012 and is now a common tool for the Nursing Department.
