Students in the Computer Applications Development, Computer Programming, Computer Programming and Analysis, IT Innovation and Design, and Mobile Solutions Development programs demonstrated the culmination of skills and knowledge learned over the length of their studies.
Computer Programming and Analysis students Andy Gnasienco, Oleksandr Levinskyi and Daniel Lopes Arcanjo were awarded Best of Program for their Atlantic Hurricane Dashboard project. The cross-platform educational application was designed as a tool to help teach hurricane science to elementary and secondary students. The dashboard collects data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and CIOOS (Canadian Integrated Ocean Observing System) Atlantic to inform tutorials, quizzes, and path visualizations.
Computer Programing students Gabriela da Cruz Mello, Cleison Hister and Devit Souza Bremer were awarded Best of Program for a mobile application that fully integrates with a client’s proprietary library to communicate with electronic controllers and motors. The application gives users real-time feedback on important aspects of their equipment.
Students Nachiket Rameshbhai Dobariya, Shrutiben Sanjaybhai Parikh, and Sahil Verma from the Mobile Solutions Development program, Yaonan Deng, Miguel Orlando Morales Andrade and Xingru Yao from the Computer Applications Development program, and John Aldeguer, Son Shiu Lo and Yuyuan Wang from the IT Innovation and Design program were also awarded Best of Program for their capstone projects.
Best in Program teams will compete at Tech Showcase on April 25 at Conestoga’s Cambridge - Fountain Street campus with other final semester student projects from the School of Engineering & Technology and School of Applied Computer Science & Information Technology. The winner will be awarded the Mastercraft Award, which recognizes excellence in program-related skills.
Among the student projects showcased were also e-commerce sites, e-learning platforms, inventory management systems, and online booking platforms.
