Meet Our Students
Stephen Cohen is a dual degree (BS/MS in Computer Science) student at Hofstra. His major interest lies in software engineering and computer graphics. He is currently working with faculty on cutting-edge research projects in 3D modeling and web-based text mining of computing ontology.
Zack Honig is a 2011-2012 senior student in Computer Science, with a concentration in Computing Entrepreneurship. His senior design project is a new website connecting Hofstra Computer Science students and alumni with potential employers, internship and job opportunities. It allows employers to enter internships/jobs descriptions and to view potential students’ resumes and interests. Students and alumni can post their resume, skills, and projected career goals and then can view jobs listed on the site. A matching algorithm is used to match jobs with the right student, and an alert via email and text message are sent to both the employer and the student when a match is found.
Lukasz Bator is a senior student majoring in BS Computer Science with an option in Entrepreneurship. For his senior design project, Lukasz has developed a 3D game engine using Microsoft XNA. The game is inspired by MineCraft. It can generate infinite amount of terrain in real-time, shaped in different ways, modified by digging or adding terrain. Software development was very challenging due to the very large amount of data that had to be processed very fast by the CPU and GPU. Lukasz had to use special algorithms, multi-threading, caching data and other techniques to make his game work fast.
