Meet Computer Science Students and Alumni
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.
Cynthia Cheng '14 has always been a problem-solver. At Hofstra's School of Engineering and Applied Science, she has developed her skills in a program that emphasizes high-tech research, practical experience and interdisciplinary study, and encourages collaboration between faculty and students. For Cynthia, the opportunity to challenge herself in different ways - academically, athletically and through hands-on experience – has paid off. She spent the summer before her senior year as an intern at NBC Universal in Los Angeles, and has accepted a job offer from GEICO at their offices in Maryland after graduation. She'll be part of a three-year rotational program that will allow her to develop technology skills in different areas of the company.
