Computer science students test a new VR project

Samford’s computer science major takes students to the forefront of a technological revolution that has dramatically changed the face of modern society. Faculty, students and alumni seek ways to represent, process and produce knowledge for every discipline imaginable.

When computer science professor Greg Kawell secured a grant to purchase four new virtual reality units, he asked the Samford community for project ideas. The response was overwhelming, and Kawell’s computer science students worked across disciplines to develop VR projects throughout the university. They combined technical skills with marketable, client-focused experience, and learned to work in the diverse teams of developers they’ll encounter as professionals. Watch them work!
