Third Annual Bachelor of Computer Information Systems Project Showcase
Come meet your future high performer in Information Technologies and see projects that they have created during their time in our Bachelor of Computer Information Systems (BCIS) degree.
Monday, December 11, 2017, 5:30 to 9:30 pm
This is a trade show style event where attendees will be able to walk around the room and interact individually with each team. Attendees can also come and go from the event at any time.
These projects centre around senior BCIS students that teamed up to create their own software app/package ranging from Big Data to Mobile application development.
Smart pill dispenser a shrewd solution for Africa
What does computer science have to do with health care? Everything, if you’re Faith-Michael Uzoka, PhD.
The Mount Royal professor is already known for creating soft-computing models/systems for efficient and effective diagnosis of tropical confusable diseases. Now, he’s partnered with Gift Arnold Mugisha, a “genius” high school student in Africa to change the face of health care on the continent. They’ve invented a smart pill dispenser doubling as an inanimate medical assistant that is equipped with remote communication capabilities between the patient and a medical professional. Full story

Computing and Mathematics in the Community
Over the summer we have upgraded the workstations in three of our computer labs, B107, B215 and B162, with dual monitors. Students learning programming and web development will have twice the screen real estate to work on!
Funding for these upgrades was provided by MRU’s capital funding and the monitors were installed by Mathematics and Computing Instructional Assistants, Jordan Pratt and Steve Kalmar.
