Doctoral Student Receives Prestigious SMART Scholarship
Patrick Kahl, a doctoral student, has been awarded a scholarship from the Department of Defense Science, Mathematics And Research for Transformation (SMART) Scholarship for Service Program.
Computer Science (CS) spans the range from theory to practice to cutting−edge inventions. CS makes graduates aware of
new technologies and new ideas and is a foundation for many different computing careers. Computer Scientists design and build
software and create efficient solutions to real−world problems in fields such as robotics, computer−enhanced vision,
and digital forensics.
The need for computing professionals and executives right here in the U.S. is growing as companies become more global. Almost every major challenge facing our world is turning to computing for a solution, from conquering disease to eliminating hunger, from improving education to protecting the environment.
