  • Can I register more than one project?

    • Yes. Please submit an individual form for each project with a descriptive project name.

    • 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.

  • 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.
