Public invited to Cameron University’s Computing and Technology Day

The Cameron University Department of Computing and Technology will host a Computing and Technology Day on Tuesday, April 10 with a series of presentations and student competitions.  All presentations are open to the public at no charge.

Dr. Henry Neeman, Director, University of Oklahoma Supercomputer Center for Education & Research (OSCER), will present “Supercomputing in Plain English – What the Heck is Supercomputing?” at 11 a.m. in the CETES Conference Center. Following a luncheon, a panel of CU students will join in a discussion focusing on “What We Bring to the Table: International Students and Internships.” The panel is slated to begin at 1 p.m.

Cameron students will demonstrate their knowledge during several computer and technology related competitions. The Ethical Inquiry competition provides an opportunity for up to eight students to engage in a significant discussion about ethical dilemmas in the fields of information technology, computer science and multimedia.

The Database competition contains two parts. Students will first design a database given certain business requirements; then, they will demonstrate their ability to use Structured Query Language to provide business answers to various questions

The Programming contest will test problem-solving and programming skills. Students will be given the opportunity to work as members of a team and experience the challenges of solving several problems in a team environment under time constraints.

The Hacking contest will test participants’ knowledge of White, Grey, and Black Box Penetration Testing and the ability to document the findings in a format similar to a Security Assessment Report, while working through problems that could be experienced if the proper care is not taken to protect the assets of a corporation.

Winners will be announced during an awards ceremony at 4 p.m. in the CETES Conference Center.

The Computing and Technology Expo is made possible by the Ajesh Bhargava Endowed Lectureship in Computing Sciences.
