Computer science students demonstrate projects

Keen computer science students lined up to pitch their latest programming endeavours to attendees at the 2022 Computer Science Demo Day, Dec. 8.

300 Ouellette Ave. held the event in-person for the first time since the pandemic started. The downtown building houses the Master of Applied Computing (MAC) program.

MAC student Kameswara Peddada was there with his fellow project members pitching their project “Simplified SCO on Wheels,” a product that allows you to check yourself out at a store using your cell phone.
