Research Requirement  
The research will normally be accomplished as an extension of a research effort or project begun in an advanced computing course and must reflect individual effort, although it may build on an existing group project. The research must be conducted under the supervision of a member of the faculty and must result in a written paper and oral presentation of a depth and quality suitable for submission to a professional conference. Neither the research nor the resulting paper and presentation need be completed during the same semester they are begun, but must be completed by the end of the TEE period of semester 8. The final written document and oral presentation must be approved by both the research mentor and the Cyber Science Program Director.
AND
Grade Requirements  
Attain an APSC of at least 3.0 in courses taken for the core curriculum and an APSC of at least 3.5 in courses taken for the major.
