Abstract

Students in computer science and information technology should be engaged in solving real-world problems received from government and industry as well as those that expose them to various areas of application. This paper summarizes the results of an undergraduate research project between students in the Department of Information Sciences and Technology (IST) and the Department of Physics. Students were provided with a copy of Satellite Tool Kit, a commercial software product, and asked to complete research and development tasks based on the concepts learned in a distributed computing course. This interdisciplinary and collaborative effort provided challenges, lessons learned and positive experiences for future development.
