Pitchers/Advisors Frequently Asked Questions
Can I register more than one project?
Yes. Please submit an individual form for each project with a descriptive project name.
I am not a faculty member of the Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSSE) Department, how do I team up with a CSSE faculty member?
We will work with you to find the required advisor during the process.
What is the role of the CSSE Department faculty advisor?
The minimum duties of a project faculty advisor is to articulate the expectations and objectives of a senior project, which includes helping to appropriately scope the work (more than a weekend, not so much as to deserve a doctorate), 2 units worth of work each quarter, etc. Many advisors do more of course.
I am a CSSE Department faculty member. I would like to be an advisor, but I do not have a specific project to pitch. What should I do?
Does pitching a project or filling out the volunteer form as an advisor lock me into anything?
- No. This event is a match making and communication oriented event. Individual decisions are still required by all participants.
