Faculty are always recognized for their research, but during Student Research Week, UCF turns the spotlight toward students. At the Student Scholar Symposium, the main event of Student Research Week, more than 800 students with over 600 projects present their research to their peers, faculty, staff and judges who award the top poster presentations.

This year, more than 80 projects were presented by students from the College of Engineering and Computer Science and several of them won top awards during the two-day symposium. Here are the winners from the CS department:

Day One Award Winners:
  • Rushikesh Harikishan Kankar, Master of Science in Computer Science
    “Leveraging EEG Signals and Motion Artifacts for Accurate Gait Event Prediction: A Machine Learning Approach”
    Faculty Advisor: Helen Huang
  • Riya Shanker, Bachelor of Science in Data Science
    “Investigating the Lift Characteristics of a Morphing Airfoil”
