UAF Computer science students seek software projects
University of Alaska Fairbanks computer science students are now accepting proposals for software design projects.
The projects allow students to gain real-world experience while government, public service and private organizations gain software free of charge. Typical prices for commercial custom software development projects done annually by UAF students can cost up to $40,000. The projects often require more than 650 hours of development per team of three to four students.
Students have developed more than 65 successful projects over the last two decades. Previous projects by students include Love INC, Fairbanks North Star Borough, City of North Pole, Bureau of Land Management, Fairbanks Taxi, University of Alaska Museum of the North and the National Weather Service.
Each completed project has presented student teams with a new set of challenges. Project clients are partners in the educational process by working with students to clarify requirements and being involved in the evaluation of the student project outcomes.
Submissions received by Wednesday, Nov. 27 will be provided with feedback and allowed to submit a revised proposal. The final deadline for submissions is Monday, Jan. 13, 2014. Submissions can be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by regular mail to: Department of Computer Science, University of Alaska Fairbanks, P.O. Box 756670, Fairbanks, AK 99775-6670. Proposals should include a basic description of your organization’s needs and contact information. Direct phone inquiries to 907-474-2777.
