Off-Campus Opportunities

Many Math and computer Science majors at Coe participate in regional, national, & international competitions and conferences.

  • Association for Computing Machinery's International Collegiate Programming Contest
  • The annual Putnam Mathematical Competition
  • The Iowa Section of the MAA's Collegiate Mathematics Competition
  • Midwest Undergraduate Mathematics Symposium (MUMS)
  • Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics
  • Mathematical Contest in Modeling
  • Computer Science Education Conference (SIGCSE)

We have a colloquia series where students can hear talks by professionals & academics on a variety of subjects. It also gives an opportunity for students to present their own research to the rest of the student body.

Coe Students Present research at international conference

Coe students Marc Davenport and Dalton Ott presented a research poster entitled "Collaboration Strategies for Drag-and-Drop Interaction with Multiple Devices" at the Human-Computer Interaction International conference July 19-22 in Toronto, Canada.

Marc and Dalton worked together on this project during the summer of 2015. They developed a software tool that allows users to connect multiple mice to a shared computer. You can read more about their project here.
