Normally we would have several people present their work each day. Each person would spend 5 minutes giving a good discussion and demonstration of their project, and then we would have an 5 minute question and answer period where other people in the class can ask questions. A good question should be specific to the project just presented and show some thought. Generic questions like 'what would you do differently next time?' or 'what was the hardest part of the project' are NOT good questions.
That's up to
you ... congrats to all the soon to be graduates.
For those that
are continuing on there are various other evl courses that you
could take (User Interface Design, Video Game Design, VR/AR), as
well as related courses in Communications, Psychology, and Art
& Design, as well as courses dealing with more sophisticated
If you are an
undergraduate in the middle of your studies, and find the topics of the course interesting, and
don't have an internship lined up for the summer, you may want
to consider becoming part of the research team on some existing
projects. Most funded research from the National Science
Foundation in the US encourages (funds) bringing in
undergraduates, so there are opportunities to work hourly on
these kinds of projects.
If you are an undergraduate nearing the end of your studies, and you find any of these topics interesting, you may also want to consider going on to graduate school ( https://cs.uic.edu/graduate/ms-program/ ) and engage with more topical issues, gain more advanced skills, play with more expensive toys for 2 more years.
department has a PDF brochure giving an overview of the MS
There are 3 MS options, all of which require
36 credits (courses at the graduate level are 4 credits each),
so its roughly two more years.
- 28 hours coursework + 8 hours of thesis
- 32 hours coursework + 4 hours of project credit
- 36 hours coursework
Back when I was
an undergrad (in the mythical brightly colored decade of the
1980s) I had no idea about graduate school, so feel free to chat
with me (or any of the other CS faculty) if you have any
questions. I didn't think staying in school even longer would be
part of my career path, but I'm very glad I did consider it.
